Afternoon 82 Degrees, Wind S 6 Mph, mostly cloudy.
We had gate traffic today with a couple of companies clearing out and others starting up operations. My other problem came back with getting my email to display in Outlook. I think Outlook 2003 is dead as there is no support or the possibility of getting the updates for the software. I have downloaded the 2013 on a trial and that is also giving me problems. part of the incoming traffic was the "tanks" for flow back, trailers with one set of tandem wheels (no picture yet) that are used as temporary storage. these trailers are like a large square box and can be connected together to make one large tank. As these trailers have only one axle it cannot be used to carry liquid on the highway.

Flow back, here at the well pad is starting;
“Flow back is a process in which fracture fluid is recovered from the well to the surface. The process may also include the return of any energized gases that have been injected into the well during the fracturing process such as nitrogen or carbon dioxide. The purpose of the flow back is to safely recover these substances from the well and transition the marketable hydrocarbons (oil or natural gas) of the well stream to a sales pipe line or storage tank”.
This is a 24-7 operation which for us means we have “live on site people”. They bring in campers for the workers to sleep on the well pad. But with people here 24-7 there is always someone coming back in or going to the store or another well pad. The gate becomes like a regular revolving door operation of vehicles in and out. Sometimes it seems like only a few do the work and the rest are runners going and coming all the time.
