They say their drilling for CO2 and thinking of building a900 mile pipe line to Texas for it.Guess people in TX just inhale and never exhale ? What is the CO 2 used for?

My fiance and I are in the process of buying some land north of St. Johns. I recently became aware of the Kinder Morgan CO2 pipeline and wells. I am deeply concerned. I am aware of the dangers of fracking - how is drilling for CO2 different? Still the same dangers of contaminated ground water?
Does anyone know where they will drill these new wells?
If we own land can they simply drill on our property since we don't own the mineral rights?
Any updated info is appreciated!!!!

Well, if it's in fact Co2 the worst case is if it leaks into the water supply you'll have a soda fountain coming out of your faucets and spigots, get some syrup and start bottling.
Sorry, couldn't resist...

And if its fracking fluids of toxic chemicals mixed with the water that is forced under pressure to cause the fracking there might be cause for alarm. Not all of the fracking fluids are or can be removed when they finish drilling the well. Any toxic chemicals left underground have the potential chance of moving into an aquifer or water well and cause contamination. Whatever water well is tapped into that aquifer may have suffer from contamination and unusable water.

Question CO2 thats what their drilling for when I think of CO2 I think of dry ice or the gas that comes out of my cars tail pipe and if there's to much my car flunks emission test? From what I have found on the net they have leased drilling rights to 6000 acres in the area for about 168 wells.So is this gas a green house gas?What is it used for in the oil refining industry also what would happen if there were a large leak in a valley or near a home since you can't see it or smell it could you suffocate from it while sleeping or drive into it in your car it would stop and I guess so would you. Lastly what's it worth/ value tax wise for Apache County and the State of Arizona City of St Johns? Especially the City of St Johns since they could have water problems down the road.They should incorporate the areas where drilling will be taking place into their city and impose a special tax to cover their butts just in case.

"When drilling they use a cement casing put into the ground from the top down, this cement casing cracks (at times) and allows the fracking water with chemicals to leak out into the nearby water table. Also when extracting the natural gas during the process can also leak out into the water table. Pollution to the underground water seems to be a common issue with fracking."

There is a lot of mis information in this quote from above. There is no cement casing placed down in these drills. I worked in the oil fields of North Dakota for a while and am very familiar with the process. Also, to use the EPA as a source on anything environmental is a bit one sided. That agency is based on unfounded fears of taxpayers for their funding. If they want money and power they have to keep the fear fires stoked.

I am coming to believe the old cliche that environmentalists are like watermelons, green on the outside and red inside.

Not sayin' it hasn't happened, but I'd be interested in reading of evidence where the EPA has erred in favor of the public. They are one of the federal agencies most corrupt by big money.....IMO of course...

EPA and big money

So what is the co2 used for? Why go through all the expense drilling building a 800 mile pipe line for something that comes out of most smoke stacks for free ?

I've lived around fracking for most of my life and never experienced any of those things.
