UPDATE: July 1, 2015
Case Number: BLD1506-246
Applicant: Atlas Barnett, LLC.
Location: 7404 and 7504 Pleasant Run Road
Present Zoning: Agricultural with Specific Use Permit
An active gas well site is located within 1,500 feet of your property. The gas well site is located at 7404 and 7504 Pleasant Run Road, and it is operated by Atlas Barnett, LLC. A Specific Use Permit has been approved to allow for the operation of equipment and activity associated with the gas well site. In addition, as allowed by the Specific Use Permit, a Temporary Use Permit has been approved to allow for the testing of four of the wells to see how much natural gas they are producing for the purposes of gauging well viability long term. The temporary equipment is related to an enclosed combustor that is approximately 30 feet tall and resembles the picture below as provided by the operator:
Flaring is not permitted in the City of Colleyville, and enclosed combustion units are alternatives to flaring that attempt to produce minimal to no smoke, odor, or visible flame. Atlas will likely begin operations the week of June 29, 2015, and will take approximately 40 days to complete (until August 11, 2015). Other equipment or activity may be seen on the site during this time to install or operate the combustor.
The enclosed combustor will be running 24 hours per day but must comply with the City’s noise standards, and sound walls will be in place around the pad site throughout the temporary use. Any hauling or trucking activities related to the site must be during daylight hours (between 7:00am and 7:00pm). The City will be inspecting and monitoring the temporary use of the property to ensure that applicable regulations are being followed. More information concerning gas well activities can be found at www.colleyville.com/gaswelldrillingandproduction.html.
Please contact Atlas at (817) 698-8000 or me if you have any questions. I can be reached at (817) 503-1052 or email@example.com.
