THREE Gas Industry PR people Inadvertently Tell Truth and ADMIT to Water Contamination!


After years of saying gas drilling is safe, 
the industry now concedes that wasn't entirely the case.
Big Hat Tip to Catskill Citizens for Safe Energy for this one (from FB):
I've added 2 more datapoints.

SWN's Boling: "Not the industry's finest hour"

Boling: "Not the industry's finest hour"
1: Mark Boling of Southwest Energy admitted that Early water contamination in PA due to casing failure was "not the industry's finest hour." SOURCE: http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Hydrofracking-brings-prosperity-landowners-told-4563613.php

API's Moreau: "There are clearly cases"

2: Karen Moreau (American Petroleum Institute /
New York State Petroleum Council): when asked about water contamination under intense cross-examination by NY Assembly member Brian Kavanagh finally admitted "There are clearly cases":

Karen Moreau: "There are clearly cases."
EID's Krohn: Water Contamination leaves "Room for Improvement"
3:Energy In Depth's John Krohn just admitted some truth in a recent LttE in the Scranton Times-Tribune in response to their series by Laura Legere (
http://tinyurl.com/mm6jnhj) on widespread water contamination in Pennsylvania. While he was trying his best to "debunk" the piece, he accidentally admitted that there was water contamination caused by gas drilling by saying the number of incidents dropped by 70% when the DEP adopted stronger casing regulations! He also said that continued incidents were "room for improvement".

  • "Not our finest hour"? 
  • "Room for improvement"? 
  • "There are clearly cases"?

May you, and all beings
be happy and free from suffering :)
