Now our Idiots that run the country want to start leasing land under Lewisville Lake to Companies to start fracking. What could possible go wrong ? And there is not a whole lot we a citizens we can do about it. I guess if it causes the already leaking dam to break they will make it all right huh? Or if it poisons the drinking water that will be OK to.

The dam is fine. I've talked to many people over this matter. It's getting repaired, the media thru it all out of wack. Fracking is a whole other issue. I'm not in favor.

If you have Netflix, I recommend you watch the movie "Fracknation". It may allay your concerns, or at least give you an alternate view.

I don't see anyone crying about paying $1.40ish at the gas pumps...I guess y'all want to stop all fracing and just buy the oil from OPEC!
If fracing was such a big problem, the Permian basin would have imploded into a giant sink hole years ago. There's a lot a good folks that depend on the oil and gas business and the impacts don't stop at just the guys doing the work....Look at Skeeter boats, they've even backed off giving away 2 boats this year at the owners tournament.
Frac it, and Frac it now!!

I been in West Texas now since 1975 and so far we have not fallen in, BUT there are some sink holes out here and one near Wink is somewhat scary at times .

Fracing is done primarily for natural gas. There's some oil, but that's not the main objective there.

I'm taking a course in oil & gas law this semester. We're getting alot of information on how drilling, pumping etc works (you can't write a good mineral lease if you don't understand the subject matter after all). The more I learn about fracing, the more it unsettles me.

Tell the Eagle-Ford oil producers they are fracing for natural gas.

Yeah, well go read the Dallas Morning News Article on the Crappie site (Lewisville Lake Fracking Thread) if you think..."It's all fine".

Uhh...When gas prices are low, natural gas drilling declines. When gas prices go up a lot, then gas drilling increases. So your argument about people complaining about fracking because gas is low kind of makes zero sense. Fracking's got nothing to do with gas prices. Saudi Arabia has a lot to do with gas prices.

Get to learning! ;-)

Sir, fracing is not primarily done in gas wells.

Do you really think all the production in the Eagle Ford, Bakken and Ok is drilling for gas?

Drilling for nat gas is not economic in today's commodity prices. You are after oil or condensate in this environment and you are fracing each and every one of those oil wells.

Remember how deep these wells are being fraced folks.

Fracing isn't causing these earth quakes etc.

Don't believe all the Michael Moore liberal bull [censored].

An article can be written to swing either direction. I did read the article, and had a good laugh. I have been in this business for many years, and I wont deny that there are some inherent risks to drilling and completing a well. Everything has inherent risks, and problems can happen, that's where good risk assessment and mitigation procedures come in. That holds true for any type of operation. What would you rather have, a nuclear power plant across the street from your house or a gas well? If I were a citizen of that area, I would be more concerned with other areas of the drilling and completion process than I would the frac.

Fracing has been used since the 1960's and never a complaint till the liberal tree huggers and rock lickers heard about it. Do a little research on fracturing and learn the truth, not what you learn reading liberal BS.

The Austin chalk in Caldwell County, Texas has been fraced forever and not a problem one and those wells are only 1800 to 2300 feet deep.

not to mention there are several operators that are fracing with produced water and not freshwater.
