Shell Appalachia subsidiary SWEPI LP suspended operations in Union Township while they contain and investigate methane and water releases around the Guindon K 706 well pad. The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is also working in the area.

    Thanks for reporting this incident. I heard about it on NPR and yours is the only article I came across concerning it. I too, would like to know more about this. Thanks for keeping us posted on these types of issues.

    Great photos and important story. But there's no way I can pick up a paper copy. I've subscribed and would really like to see more details about this disturbing incident in the e-newspaper if that's possible! Thanks for reporting on it. It would be good to see more news about the EQT leaking frack pit as well, since that appears to be impacting surface water and groundwater.
