Electrical issues over night. Busy gate as four oil wells will be “fraked”, then completion work to production. When I surveyed everything yesterday I thought to myself I will service the fuel into the generator in the morning. This was during the time the oil change was taking place. Just before midnight I was up for a bathroom call and noticed some electric off. In talking to Bonnie she had plugged a heater and another heater into the same circuit and tripped a circuit breaker. I had to advise her as to where and how to reset, ok everything is now good so back to bed for me. I was awakened again when the generator was surging, the rpm was dropping then recovering it was causing the outside lights to go off then a half hour to come back to full brightness. This got so bad that the generator was winding down to almost shutting off. Just about daylight I was checking the unit and saw that there was just about a half a tank of fuel. I serviced to full and no more surging today

Afternoon 81 Degrees, Wind SE 8 mph, Humidity 53%, mostly sunny. Busy day as there are a lot of different companies involved with the operation of the frak. Most have a shift change but there are sleep overs also. There are logistic trucks bringing and taking equipment also with service companies, toilet, diesel fuel for the equipment operation, chemicals and sand trucks.
