Our look at the
RODENSKI UNIT

MOUNT PLEASANT TOWNSHIP, PA - August 13, 2009 is here and it is time to follow weeks of drilling and preparation by hydraulically fracturing Rodenski Unit gas well 1H. The "1" means it could be the first of many wells on the same production pad (a few miles away the Best Unit has 7 wells) and the "H" means it is a horizontal or directional gas well instead of a vertical gas well.
  
  In these photos we see a fleet of Frac Tech equipment crowded onto the drilling pad that is being used to provide the extremely high pressure and fracturing fluids with proppants (up to 6 million gallons of water, sand, and frac fluids per well) to hydraulically fracture this Marcellus gas well. A gas flare that lit-up the night sky in Hickory soon followed.

A group of big FracTech trailer mounted MAGNUM 2500's arrive on site.
  
  
Each MAGNUM 2500 delivers 2,250 horsepower from a CAT engine creating pressure up to 12,000 p.s.i.

The 'Secret Sauce' for fracking could be something like this:
3 pinches of sand, 1,000 gallons of water and 2 quarts of frac fluid.
Add diesel fuel if you dare, but it's not legal.

Remote field with several dozen more Baker tanks connected to the Rodenski frac job through the water gate. Each tank holds 2,100 gallons of water or other fluids.
  
  
Trailer mounted pump moves the fluids through thousands of feet of temporary pipes.
