Dangerous work. My hopes go out for a speedy recovery for all injured.

When I took my Shalenet training at EGCC, the instructor who issued our PEC SafeLand SafeGulf cards told us of a tragic story of a close family friend. Their 23 YO son was on his last day out before his wedding day, he was doing a PM at a compressor station, he was blown away from the mid chest up by a faulty by-pass system.

I pray everday as I work with 2800* + steel on a daily business.

Sure its all safe. They know nothing, and still will lie their pants off without care for residents. I do not believe for a second that there will not be many consequences.

Quick question here! how is it that the Emergency Management does not know what entity owns the compressor station? Seems like a simple and necessary thing to know. The government doesn't know who owns a particular compressor station, but they are certain that fracking and fracking materials are safe for us and the environment? HMMMmmmmmm.
