Our look at the
BEDNARSKI UNIT

 

HOPEWELL TOWNSHIP, PA - The Bednarski Unit saw ongoing activity over several years, to include an 8-well Marcellus Shale drilling pad, as well as a nearby impoundment for recycled frac fluids. One additional Marcellus well (1H) had to be plugged. Below are some photos of the evolution of the Bednarski drilling unit on Marcellus Shale in Washington County, Pennsylvania.

Lead Permit: 125-23852 (4)
Violation: Spill; while transferring hydraulic fracturing flowback fluid from an impoundment to a well site for fracking, a pressure valve collar assembly on an above-ground transfer line came loose and an unknown amount of the fluid spilled to the ground and into an unnamed stream that flowed into an unnamed pond nearby; sampling results confirmed that the fluid reached the water, but no dead aquatic life was observed during the inspection.
Response: Company said crews began digging trenches to intercept the spilled fluid and believed they kept most of it out of the unnamed stream and pond; the ground was so wet that to avoid causing more damage to the environment, employees dug up the impacted soil by hand and placed it in barrels instead of bringing in heavy equipment; a month later an inspection found that the contaminated soil was removed and the site was seeded and mulched to restore vegetation.
