Study: Leaky pipes and seals, not fracking, tainted water 16.9.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • The drilling procedure called fracking didn’t cause much-publicized cases of tainted groundwater in areas of Pennsylvania and Texas, a new study finds. Instead, it blames the contamination on problems in pipes and seals in natural gas wells. After looking at dozens of cases of suspected contamination, the scientists focused on eight hydraulically fractured wells in those states, where they chemically linked the tainted water to the gas wells. They then used chemical analysis to fig...

Gas Pipeline Accident Kills 1, Injures 2 In Louisiana 14.9.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- A contractor was killed and two others were injured Saturday during maintenance on a Chevron natural gas pipeline off the Louisiana coast, authorities said. The contractor, whose name was not immediately released, was among four maintenance workers on the platform when the accident occurred about 11:10 a.m. Saturday, said Gareth Johnstone, a spokesman for Chevron Pipe Line Co. He said the two other workers were taken to a hospital for what are expected to be minor injuries. A helicopter brought two people from offshore to meet an ambulance, but both declined to take the ambulance to a hospital after being checked by medics, said Randall Ansley, shift supervisor for Acadian Ambulance. Johnstone said he did not know what caused the death and injuries. The platform is part of a natural gas gathering system and the pipeline was shut-in after the accident, Johnstone said. He said the cause of the accident was being investigated. Johnstone said a small amount of natural gas condensate was ...
