Chesapeake's Edgecliff Drilling

Site of numerous Edgecliff permitted gas drills; including the D 1-H, 3-H and 5-H units, and the completed B 1-H unit.
Mountain Drilling Company continues the D 5-H drill. As mentioned in another post this type of rig employs an automated pipe handling system.
These transfer lines are being used to fracture an adjacent unit. This highly controversial method of releasing the gas from the shale has been both applauded and criticized. The controversy is over the contents of the frac fluids raising environmental concerns. Some say safe - others say danger. Your opinion is welcomed in the poll found on the home page.
