Re: “Oil and water: Will they mix?

Regarding the EPA report on the Pavillion, WY water wells, it is suggested that possibly, maybe, "wink, wink, nod, nod. Say no more," there was some contamination. The EPA detected 2-BE (2-butoxyethyl) in one well. 2-BE is commonly used as a flame retardant and in plastics, not so much for fracking. Now, some people say the results are questionable because two other EPA labs failed to produce similar evidence from the same samples. This sounds like bad science, doesn't it? Then the EPA used deep well soda ash in their drilling mud, then astonishingly, they found pH levels of 11.5!! Don't you wonder if this is another version of Fast and Furious?? The article should be entitled: EPA contaminates own wells, blames 'Fracking" to hide incompetence." But, no, that would require thought and an understanding of drilling techniques. Gosh, if it isn't simple enough for a journalist to connect the dots, then, by gosh, it has to be the way the EPA spins it. Pam should actually research a topic before writing about it. What a one-two punch in the collective gut: bad science and bad journalism. Who can the public trust? Maybe, just maybe, this is why Petroleum Engineers are paid so much more than Journalists.
