How Gas Wells Leak

Gas wells leak from the outside up, then from the inside out. Sooner or later, they all leak.

The DEC’s proposed “enhanced requirements” for well construction will not keep Upstate drinking water from being gassed. Gas wells leak meth
ane from the outside of the casing up more often than from the inside out. As they rust out, all gas wells will eventually leak into groundwater.

The only viable solution is adequate setbacks of gas wells from drinking water sources. Gas well setbacks in New York are the worst in the
United States.
