MARCELLUS AIR III

 
 

MARCELLUS AIR III : Aerial photographs of Marcellus Shale gas drilling, fluid lines, wastewater impoundments, frac pits, natural gas pipelines and hydraulic fracturing photos. The Marcellus Shale gas play from an aerial view. Premier photographs of Marcellus Shale gas drilling.

The Marcellus Shale play in pictures from the air!

 
Marcellus Shale impoundment north of Pittsburgh, Pa
Black-lined impoundment in a farm field
 
 
Shale drilling site and impoundment in western Pennsylvania
"L"-shaped impoundment and drilling location
 
 
New Marcellus Shale impoundment and drilling pad
New Marcellus Shale drilling location ready to go
 
 
Natural gas processing plant north of Pittsburgh
Gas production plant similar to the early days of the MarkWest plant near Houston Pa.  Western Pennsylvania Marcellus Shale natural gas is 'wet gas' with ethane, butane and propane, so those liquids must be extracted by processing plants like this one, before the methane can be sold to natural gas utilities.
 
 
Recycle wastewater impoundment dam
Looks like the green hose on the lower right side of this pit is being used to illegally siphon-off wastewater from the pit into the roadside ditch. Call the DEP!
 
 
Odd-shaped impoundment
 
 
Drilling Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania
Marcellus Shale drilling has begun
 
 
Fluid impoundment with pumps
Impoundment dam with three pumps situated next to each other on the embankment
 
 
Sound barrier next to Marcellus drilling
Sound wall constructed between the house and drilling location. Drilling takes place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
 
 
Marcellus drilling began in rural areas like this one in western Pennsylvania
 
 
Drilling pad and production pit
Drilling location with a production pit on the drilling pad
 
 
White-stained black liners indicate these impoundments are used to hold Marcellus flowback and produced water


 

 

 

Drilling site with three impoundments
Triple impoundments next to an active drilling location
 
 
White stains on impoundment liners indicate reused drilling flowback and wastewater
Another triple impoundment with white stains on the black liners
 
 
Drilling close to a neighborhood
 
 
Ugly production pit holding drilling waste
'Mr Yuk' stuff in that middle pit!
 
 
Two impoundment dams and a production pit
Residual waste tanker dumping into the pit on the right
 
 
Birds eye view of the same drilling location
 
 
Frack pits still being constructed
Milky-looking flowback in this production pit
 
 
Impoundment for Marcellus Shale drilling
And you thought the Caribbean was blue!
 
 
Initial drilling while extra fluid impoundments are being constructed
 
 
Quadruple impoundment dams in Pennsylvania
Quad pits
 
 
Close-up of impoundments
 
 
The new family farm in Pennsylvania
 
 
Dual impoundments with stains from wastewater from Marcellus drilling
Dual pits with a 'Residual Waste' tanker dumping its load
 
 
Large impoundment was constructed close to homes
This huge new impoundment may hold 15 million gallons. Once pits like this one are converted from freshwater to wastewater impoundments they begin to smell terrible as they gas-off volatile organic compounds (VOC's)
 
 
As close as a backyard swimming pool
Bird netting creates lined appearance over black liner
 
 
Compressor station
Compressor station site has been cut out of Penn's Woods

Production pit on left has been filled in
The lower left production pit has been filled-in
 

 

 

 

Fracking

Marcellus Shale fracking equipment, frac sand and chemicals
Sand tankers are on the top left, while more than a dozen trucks in the middle (with round attachments) create the high pressure needed to fracture Marcellus Shale.
