Chevron pipeline explodes, burns in rural Texas

Nov 14, 2013 - Reuters reports - A Chevron Corp pipeline exploded near a tiny Texas town south of Dallas on Thursday, shooting flames high in the air and prompting evacuations from nearby homes and a school district, but no injuries were reported, the company and emergency officials said.

Milford's volunteer fire chief, Mark Jackson, told Dallas' WFAA-TV that about 200 students in the town's school district were evacuated, and officials closed off numerous roads around the fire.

A local CBS-TV affiliate broadcast footage of big flames rising from a field and engulfing what appeared to be a drilling rig or other large piece of equipment. Several nearby pickup trucks were burned.

FoxNews reported: "Residents in Milford and the nearby towns of Italy and Maypearl were among those asked to evacuate. Students in Milford have been transported to other schools. Large flames could be seen rising from an open field after the explosion."


Emergent situation, Toowoomba November 14, 2013 at 8:34 pm
Police and emergency crews are at the scene of excavations in Toowoomba.

Information suggests that storm activity may cause excavations to collapse and rupture a gas line in that area.

An emergent situation has been declared and traffic has been diverted.

Evacuations are underway around the area whilst emergency crews attempt to rectify the situation.

Police and emergency crews are evacuating areas within Ruthven Street, Campbell Street, Hume Street and Margaret Street.

Public are advised to follow directions of police and emergency crews.


Santos spends $17M on Pilliga spill clean-up

24 Jun 2013 - ABC - Coal seam gas explorer, Santos, says it's spent $17-million rehabilitating contaminated coal seam gas water spills in the Pilliga State Forest.

The toxic leaks occurred two years ago when Eastern Star Gas was the operator.

The state government has announced it's launching a prosecution against Santos in the Land and Environment Court over the spills.

Santos' Manager of Environment and Water, Alan Feeley, has told the ABC's 7.30 NSW "No, I wouldn't say the damage is significant, I would say it's very unacceptable practice, but in reality we're talking about 3.5 hectares in the Pilliga out of 500,000 hectares with salt in it," he said.

"It's been described as a toxic waste but, to be realistic about it, that was comparing the guidelines to the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines and no one drinks black water out of a puddle in the forest to my knowledge."
