Johnson County Mudd Farm near Rio Vista

The drilling rigs use mudd to help seal and carry the drill cuttings to the surface. When the well is complete the mudd is usually spread out next to the location and plowed in. But sometimes there is no room to do this, EXAMPLE - a well drilled on a rocky hill side. So, operators need places to land farm this mudd. This mudd farm is on several acres of land south of Rio Vista, TX, on Hwy 174.

A backhoe sits idle at the construction site of a large frac tank just south of Blum, TX in Hill county. The tank is complete, and is being supplied with water from Lake Whitney.

The pipeline stretches from Lake Whitney eastward, crossing several large ranches. The line was threaded beneath FM 933 where it empties into the recently completed tank. Water is already being used to fracture some of Quicksilver Resources nearby gas leases.
