UPDATE: August 10, 2015

Permit 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 was approved in 2010 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 and activities are related to an enclosed combustor that is approximately 30 feet tall and resembles the picture below as provided by the operator:

  enclosed combustor 

Atlas began operations on July 5, 2015.  Their original Temporary Use Permit approved in June anticipated that the work would take until August 11, 2015.  Atlas requested an extension to August 31, 2015 due to some additional procedures that needed to take place to get these particular wells to flow.  The extension has been approved to allow the reasonable completion of testing activities.

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 continue to inspect and monitor the temporary use of the property to ensure that applicable regulations are being followed.  All activities have been compliant with air quality and noise standards thus far.  More information concerning gas well activities can be found at

Please contact Atlas at (817) 665-8836 or me if you have any questions.  I can be reached at (817) 503-1052 or
