Spot The Gas Well!

By Paul Homewood

Wellers left a comment on the Ben Pile post the other day, and has sent me the photo to illustrate it:





If you go to Barenburg, Saxony in Germany there’s a large network of gas wells, but they are extremely difficult to spot due to their small size relative to the adjacent wind turbines. The gas is from sandstone, rather than shale rock, but I understand that they were hydrofractured in the 1970s to improve recovery like the Wytch Farm wells in Poole Harbour, where I was walking on Monday. The oil well there was similarly impossible to spot.”
