Well Tender

Witness NameJosh Frazier

Pulled up on pad and thought a dump was stuck open. Went into unit and ball valve blew out side. Shut in Unit and the unit blew down. Within a couple of hours later another ball valve blew and a 2" Balon Dump Valve. The pad was then shut in until all units have been repaired and inspected.

Witness Statement

As I was coming up the lease road towards the pad, I noticed a big fog above the pad and heard a very loud hissing sound as well. As I got closer I could barely see a few people off to the side of Pad and went over to see what was going on once I saw that it was safe. Brian was pretty shook up and said another dump/bypass valve had blown apart on the GPU (#4) while he was standing inside of it. He was hit by some sand, water and some loud noises but is fine as of now. With help from Dave and the ShalePro guy on location, they isolated the unit. There was also a Nalco employee taking samples right before the incident. Luckily, no one was injured.
