Emerald Oil lost control of its Ron Burgundy 3-23-14H well, which released oil, gas and water eight miles northwest of Tioga on Friday, according to the state and local officials.

State and local officials were on-site Monday.

The release has been contained to the site on County Road 19, said Mike Hallesy, the director of emergency services and 9-1-1 coordination in Williams County.

“It was an oil well that the well head broke during a hydraulic fracturing job,” Hallesy said. “Boots & Coots, a well control containment company, is trying to regain control.”

Emerald Oil began drilling Feb. 4, but since the well is considered confidential, the state refuses to release information until August.

The company has setup a hydrogen sulfide gas monitoring location south of the well in the wind path to gauge an accurate reading, Hallesy said.

The company reported a reading of 20 parts per million at 10 feet from the well. A reading of 100 parts per million is instantly dangerous to life and health,” Hallesy said. “With any of those spills, a primary concern is a fire and the involvement of H2S gas.”

There are residents in the wind path, who are being monitored for precautionary reasons, Hallesy said.

Emerald has notified farms to the west and southwest of the location.

The role of politics in a sovereign state is comprehensive and impact oriented. The states use this means to run the affairs of state apparatus.

Oil field services are so important. The entire world depends on oil, and the US is no exception. If we have the resources here we should utilize them to the best of our ability.
