what's up (if anything) with the grand Barnett Shale Play in Parker County? (like Weatherford, Lipan, etc.)

anybody seen drilling rigs aplenty? affecting the ground water at all?

we have our eyes on a newer home in "Dennis" near a big golf course called "Sugar Tree." don't want to wake up some am with a drill rig in my backyard.

what the area like? any drawback?

thanks!

newcomers

Their is drilling everywhere. I think it is more in Tarrant County and johnson County then anything though. Also if the rig goes up it will only be there for a few weeks and then it is gone. Nothing to worry about

you need to see what the drilling restrictions are in the county because I don't think you are in the city limits out there
and frankly they won't drill on a golf course...or close (depending on the set back) to houses...

Drilling rigs can set up just 200 feet from your house in unincorporated areas. Gas wells need pipelines (maybe through your yard) and 70,000 lb. water tanker trucks (down your street) for 20 or 30 years (unless the water is piped, then you hope it doesn't leak like it did near Brock).
Food for thought...

this post is almost a year old
why resurrect it
drilling is curtailed since gas prices are down
