The Worstell Unit is located on a hilltop along Ridge Avenue, off Route 980, near Canonsburg Pennsylvania. These initial six Marcellus gas wells in Chartiers Township were developed by Range Resources Appalachia LLC and hydraulically fractured in July 2010. Photos of the drilling pad and gas well development activities are shown below. Included are three photos of a gas well flare stack being unloaded from a tractor trailer.

Hazmat Placard 1789
FracTech tractor trailer tanker parked for eventual use during fracking at
the Space Management Unit nearby. This tanker truck is carrying
hydrochloric acid (1789 placard) for use in the fracking process.

1789 - HYDROCHLORIC ACID - HCl
CAS Number: 7647-01-0

Both the mist and the solution of Hydrochloric Acid
have a corrosive effect on human tissue, with
the potential to damage eyes, skin,
intestines and respiratory organs.
