fracking for natural gas in my area, deep into The Great Dikes of the Spanish Peaks.
The flare on the Elgin gas platform in the North Sea is still burning, its operator Total confirmed to Channel 4 News, increasing the likelihood that the gas leak may ignite. "We've done what we can to stop the flare," Brian O'Neill, a spokesman for Total told Channel 4 News.
Yeah, in all fairness the risk isnt that low, but it isnt as high as its being made out to be. I.e., Its a problem to the level of getting everyone off.. but not at a level where we cannot opperate flights to get them home if you know what I mean. We dont want anything to happen to our aircraft as you can imagine.

We have actually laughed when we seen the MSM news at points.. All it does it scare people. The last thing I want is these rigs to blow up
My sympathies are with you. Sounds like you need to get someone to file an injunction and get this stopped. Praying you get all the expertise on fracking hazards, legal, political and community support you need.
In the hopes of educating people as well as myslef, is the fire stack not an issue due to the fact that the gas is heavier then air and is settling on the water surface?
LONDON - Energy company Shell has evacuated some of its workers from two platforms in the North Sea that are near an underwater gas leak from a nearby rig.
Hainsworth said that drilling a relief well was one option for stopping the leak, another would be to pour heavy mud into the well.
