Dallas Parks and Train Wreckcreations
At City of Dallas Planning Commission hearing on February 7th that pitted Trinity East Energy against Dallas City Hall and concerned residents, CEO Tom Blanton made some interesting statements to Commissioner Betty Culbreath. Blanton was asked about the cement casing that is used to protect the earth while drilling. Blanton stated that the cement casing had a very low failure rate and implied that the topic was not worthy of study. For the gas industry, casing failure is a not on their radar.
He also told Culbreath how Trinity East Energy had the full cooperation and endorsement of the Dallas Parks Department in planning it’s drill sites and gas compressor location next door to the Elm Fork Soccer Field currently being built by the City of Dallas. He did not state when he had that full cooperation, nor did he say with whom in Parks he had worked.
In a letter to the Dallas Planning Commission whereupon Trinity East Energy decided to take down Gas Drilling Task Force member, Terry Welch, the letter states again about “working in concert” with the Dallas Parks Department.
Again, we don’t know when this “working in concert” happened. Tom Blanton knows. The Dallas Parks Department employee/employees know.
Read the letter.
