Whoops!  Let’s see how Energy in Depth spins this one.  Shelly Depue, star of the new movie TRUTHLAND, just made her rounds here and got VERY quiet when an audience member in Uniontown questioned her on what she knew about all the violations from the 10 Marcellus wells on her property. It must be rough being a parrot for industry when you have a bubbling annulus!

Trouble in Truthland

July 22, 2012 – Research has revealed that there is trouble in truth land. One of the Depue wells (8H) is severely flawed with a bubbling annulus. An annulus is the cemented layer between layers of steel, you know, the one that ‘never leaks’ and can survive cannon-type explosions as seen toward the end of the “Truthland” movie. Two more of the Depue wells (2H and 6H) have PA-DEP violations, which are shown below. Needless to say, it’s not going nearly as well as all the “experts” interviewed in the Truthland movie led Shelly to believe it would!

At one of the Pennsylvania movie screenings this past week, Ms. Depue stated she had not seen the PA-DEP File Review documents for Depue 8H. At least now she can find them here, since they are shown below, for everyone’s reference. Isn’t it odd that Pennsylvania landowners can be ‘kept in the dark’ when important things like this are happening on their property, that could affect their health and well-being. Violations like “Failure to properly control or dispose of industrial or residual waste to prevent pollution of the waters of the Commonwealth” doesn’t sound good for anyone living in Pennsylvania.
