30 million gallons from a fire hydrant
That’s what he said. Walter Dueease representative from XTO/EXXON told us on Monday night at the Hensley Field meeting location.
We asked: How many gallons does it take to frac a well?
Answer: About 3 million
We asked: Where is this water’s source?
Answer: We have asked to buy lake water from Exelon(they own the water rights at Mt. Creek Lake) but they have refused.
We asked: So, what is your next source?
Answer: If we have to, we would purchase water from the city of Dallas and access it via a fire hydrant.
He says 3 million per well, per frac. We hear it’s more like 5 million per well, per frac.
The Dallas Observer was there, see what they ‘observed’.
30 million, 50 million. Now don’t forget to conserve water in Dallas.
