Illegal activity in Gardendale

Posted: February 2, 2013 in Uncategorized

At this moment, Union Drilling (UDI) is moving to another location in Gardenale, TX.  This photo taken moments ago reveals what’s commonly called “double trucking”.  This process allows the rig mast to be moved without disassembling the components.  It saves the company time, it saves the company money, and it is illegal!

The common game played is to have “lookouts” for law enforcement posted along the transfer route to avoid being fined.  Instead of obeying the law, breaking the law is more convenient for oil companies.   A pattern of behavior known all too well by the residents of Gardendale.
