Antero turns WV town into Old Faithful

oil and gas drilling

Brought to you by our friends at Antero

Gas drilling triggers backyard geysers in W.Va.

Colorado-based Antero Resources was in the early stages of drilling a well and was using only water and possibly a nontoxic soap when it hit the aquifer, said Kathy Cosco, spokeswoman for the state Department of Environmental Protection.

“Nontoxic soap”?!? Yeah right. I think she misplaced a vowel. Around these parts we call it “toxic soup”.

Gee. Antero will will fracking under Silt’s nether regions in the near future. I sure hope we don’t have any aquifers or old wells down there. That couldn’t possibly happen here. Right?

Thanks to Fiona Lloyd for sending this to me.
