At approximately 1600 PM on 4/9/17, Best Line Equipment rentals was delivering a tele-handler to the Kassay Pad. The driver, Justin, had lowered his drop trailer and unloaded the tele-handler. Justin then attempted to raise his drop trailer. He then noticed the trailer was not working and had released approximately 15-20 gallons of hydraulic fluid onto the Kassay pad. The roustabout also noticed it at the same time and put a duck pond under the trailer. The roustabout continued to contain the hydraulic fluid and the driver reported it to me. We immediately contained with peat moss and began to dig up the fluid and put it a waste dumpster. We have contacted Max with NGE to evaluate the material and the cleanup. I have attached before pictures and we will follow up with after pictures when we can.

Non- Hazardous Release (Hydraulic oil approximately 15-20 gallons)
73 Degs, Clear and sunny no wind
Was placed in a Waste Container.
Pad was dry at the time of release.

At 21:36 hrs we had an incident while running 5.5 production casing. After latching up a joint of casing on the cat walk with the elevators the Driller began to pick up the joint during that time he floated his elevators back in as normal. At the same time the derrick hand that was operating the cat walk and skate, ran the skate up to far and pushed the joint of casing thru the elevators into the back of the derrick. The driller could not see that the casing had went into the back of the derrick underneath one of the 4X4 beams in the top drive track. The casing struck the beam while coming up and ripped it free from the I beams of the top drive track, the 4X4 beam fell to the floor landing on the rotary table. Kimzy casing crew had 3 men that were working on the floor where the beam fell to the floor, they saw it happen and were able to dive out of the way of the beam before it came to the floor.

Myself and the Rig Manager heard the incident happen and immediately went to the rig floor to assess the situation and ensure no one was injured (no injuries). It was found that the top drive track had suffered damage and was bent to the point that the top drive could not come to the floor. (Jay Hewitt was contacted at this time)( Brent Kasmiear Nabors superintendent)

We held a safety stand down to allow the personal to calm down and come up with a plan to remove the joint of casing that was still latched in the elevators. Once a plan was in place we removed the joint of casing and rigged down the casing crew and began circulating the casing.

I received a complaint from Dave Dillie on July 3,2017. He alleges NNE has caused the floor in his trailer to start to wave, He said he checked the frame, where he could access it with the level, but agreed the frame was level. The allegations started that by drilling under it we changed the water table, which then caused the trailer to settle. After further discussion and the talking through the process of drilling, he claimed it was the sand truck traffic beating on the ground that caused the trailer to settle. I told him I would discuss it with the office and we would get back to him. 7-6-2017 I went out to look at the fence that we needed to reinstall and his daughter asked what we had decided on the trailer. I told her the issue was still being discussed and we would get back to them. Mrs, Dillies cell phone #304-692-5613

DTE's pipeline has a pressure release valve at the interconnect below the Kassay Pad. The valve is set to "pop off" at 1200 psig. Our Kassay pad has a pressure safety high on our pad set at 1150 psig. So, our pad should shut in before the pressure release valve goes off shutting in our pad. The pressure safety high had been disabled and the pressure on the pipleline got above 1200 psig, causing the pressure relief valve to actuate. This venting of gas startled the water truck drivers and they ESD's the pad, which was the correct form of action. Going forward the pressure safety high on the pipeline pressure for the Kassay pad will not be disabled.

At 6:45 pm an Aveda truck driver was unloading his last load of the day unassisted and without authorization. As the pump for the rig was being hoisted up the roller board the line broke dropping the pump approximately 7'. No one was in the area but the pump sustained damage. It bent the skid, which throws the pump out of alignment, damaged the electrical motor and damaged the gear end. It will be about four days before a replacement can be put together.

The employee has been terminated for not listening to instructions and going against policies of all three companies involved. After the incident a safety stand down was preformed.

A Day Brook truck hauling fresh water was attempting to pas a parked pickup when it slid off the road. The driver contacted Brad Chadwick and they anchored the truck with a tandem until another water truck could empty it out. Once empty they were able to drive the truck back on the road.

The pickup was not supposed to be parked in that location and the Day Brook driver should have not made the attempt with such little clearance.

Moving forward we will make sure no one parks along the lease road.

On January 14th at 10:45 PM while moving the Nine Energy grease trailer from the Coastal Pad up the steep hill towards the Fisher Pad, a dash light came on in the Nine Energy pickup truck indicating "Transmission Too Hot" and the engine shut off. The truck began coasting backwards downhill with no steering or brakes. The trailer turned and pulled the pickup into the ditch, then came free from the fifth-wheel ball, which parted the safety chains and the break-away latch. The pickup came to a stop in the ditch, while the trailer continued coasting downhill. The trailer remained upright as it rolled backwards and stopped right before the tree line approximately 70 yds from the lease road.

Dustin Merchant was the driver of the Nine Energy pickup. He is a hot shot driver for Nine. He was uninjured, but was taken to the hospital for examination. Dustin also underwent a drug and alcohol test last night and the results were ?negative?.

There were no releases involved with the incident. Damage to the pickup includes body damage, driveshaft and possible hidden damage. Damage to the PCE trailer appears to be minor. The trailer has been towed back to the lease road and inspected carefully. Both the truck and trailer have been removed from NNE property. Nine Energy's investigation is ongoing.

Rigging down water transfer after drillout operations concluded.

Jeff Wilson had suspicion that Jessie Botti, an SES employee, was under the influence of something based on a conversation and observing his actions, so he called the employee's supervisor to determine. The supervisor had reasonable suspicion that he was under the influence and took him for a drug screen. The employee had a BAC of 0.23 (legal limit is 0.08) and was immediately terminated.

"This morning on Mepco I arrived on location and had a boy from Select approach me and started asking me questions about his work for the day. He didn't seem quite right so I kept an eye on him . He seemed like he was having trouble holding his train of thought. When he would bend over he would lose his balance and have to catch himself.
I contacted Cassey and told him I didn't want to accuse the boy of being under the influence of anything not knowing the boy. I asked Cassey to send someone to location that knew him to just have a conversation with him and get their opinion. Another boy showed up and I explained to him not to ask if he had been doing anything or accuse him of anything but just get him in a truck and talk to him. After 5 min the boy came to me and said that he believed he was under the influence of something and that they were taking him for drug screen. He said the boy was having some difficulty speaking and when he was asked to fill out JSA he couldn't write. The boy left with him and they were meeting Cassey and cassey was taking him for drug screen."

Drill Out Ops - Completed sweep at PBTD, Beginning trip out

Night shift had drilled all 59 plugs. Pulled and layed down Jt 635. Made up Jt 634 on the swivel to begin the surface to surface sweep while working the PH6 work string. At this point the saver sub and joint 634 seperated. The mud pump was SD and the pipe ram on the BOP's was shut. The WS fell and lodged into the annular bag which in return damaged the bag. Once everone was asked if they were OK the snubbers screwed a pup jt into the WS and pulled it back into the heavy slips and made up the kelly line to a Pump In Sub/TIW valve on joint 634 and continued the surface to surface sweep. Once the STS was completed we pulled Jt 634 and put it out of service.

Fracing Stage 42 on the Lemley 1H

During 2.0 lb 100 Mesh on stage 42 on the 1H the turbine caught fire internally. A loud noise was heard from inside the data van, and smoke was seen coming from the turbine. All equipment was immediately shut down. Power Generation also called to shutdown. At this point flames were seen coming from the exhaust of the turbine. Gas supply was shut in, and the 1H and 3H wells were shut in. All nonessential personnel were sent to the muster area, and the onsite NNE consultant called 911 and NNE management. The fire was contained inside the turbine structure, and some small spot fires were visible on the containment from leaking oil. The fire suppression system inside the turbine actuated and smothered the fire internally. The small spot fires were controlled with fire extinguishers. Once the fire department arrived, the fire had already been suppressed. Once the turbine structure cooled to 100 deg F, the fire department opened the turbine doors to confirm the fire was completely out.
