MARCELLUS AIR FIVE

 

 

MARCELLUS AIR FIVE takes you on an early-June 2011 flight over Marcellus Shale gas production activities in southwestern Pennsylvania and the panhandle of West Virginia. Enjoy your flight!

Aerial photos of fracking, wastewater impoundments, compressor stations, and active drilling operations, as well as newly excavated drilling pads and recently completed Marcellus Shale gas wells.

DRILLING PADS & EXCAVATED SITES
 
Marcellus drilling site and impoundment
 
Completed Marcellus Shale drilling site with
14 condensate tanks and impoundment
 
Bunk trailers and office trailers along edge of drilling pad
 
Large excavation well underway
 
Smaller rigs drill the initial vertical holes
 
Aerial view of the complete drilling operation
 
Drilling pad with production pit to the rear
 
Most drilling still occurs in rural areas
 
Brown erosion matting is used on steep slopes
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

WASTEWATER IMPOUNDMENTS & PITS
 
Mixers in impoundments are now more common than they were
during previous flights. Note the circular areas on the
surface of the impoundment fluid.
 
Backyard grill with three ponds!
 
Triple impoundments with stained liners
 
Dual impoundments and a battery of condensate tanks
 
Color of the Day!

FRACKED & FLARED
 
West Virginia fracking operation underway
 
Compressor trucks are linked to create over
10,000 psi of pressure to fracture the shale
 
Yellow and blue tanks each hold 2,000 gallons of fracking liquids
 
Fracking equipment in place on a drilling pad
 
White temporary pipeline feeds red and blue fluid tanks
 
Candlestick flare on some completed wells
 
Triple impoundment and candlestick flare
