Unfortunately, we didn't send it all! We still have more than enough to keep us entertained.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I will have to say that with it being frozen, I am enjoying not having any mud!

While I do not care for bitter cold, I wish here in ne Ohio it would stay below 30°F from December till March!

I do not like mud! :(

Our son Erik has been at Fort Polk in Louisiana since late January for JRTC. His home duty post is Fort Drum, Watertown, NY.
This past week it’s been colder in LA than in Upstate NY!
They were supposed to leave yesterday but the base has been shut down, not leaving now until Saturday...maybe.

Yes, that cold weather, in the southern states, is unreal. Pray for all those who are without power! This is a real tough time for them. It's been cold here too, but we have the resources to deal with it, they don't!

Crazy to hear that they are having natural gas lines freeze up down in texas and the electric companies having rolling blackouts to conserve. :shock:

Must be condensation trapped in their gas transmission lines somewhere, because natural gas turns into a liquid at -259.6°F!

Just one more reason to make better preparations for ourselves, whoever we are, and wherever we might live!

Natural gas, as it comes out of the well, has a lot of water mixed in. It goes through separators that remove the water. My understanding is that the lines have been freezing before the gas gets to the separators.

I can’t speak for Texas, but in the Marcellus and coal bed methane gas fields in SWPA, OH and WV, some of the water is pumped off at the wellhead and the rest is extracted at dehydration (dehy) stations, usually near a compressor station. The water is typically brackish and is hauled to waste treatment plants for treatment. Never heard of a gas line freezing here. But, that’s not to say that it hasn’t. Lines here are typically buried below the frost line.

A lot of homes in southern states have electric heat. That’d kill us up north. A lot of us having experienced power failures up here have backup plans, generators and wood stoves.
I’d think with all the hurricanes down south you’d have generators but I guess it takes a pretty big one to do home electric heat rather than just spark a Oil fired boiler or gas furnace.
I was looking at the news footage of that horrific multi car pileup from black ice. From the damage it looks like speeds of 70+ were involved.
Gotta expect that ice when temps drop and slow way down to 40 and slower speeds.
This weather is for awd, 4wd, and at least fwd vehicles. Sporty cars stay home. Finally don’t do anything harsh behind the wheel, don’t jam the breaks, cut the wheel or panic when it slides because it will.

We have 3 gas wells on our property, (unfortunatly I do not get the royalities :( !)

Up here, each well has its own separator and brine / oil tank is right at the well head. Tanker trucks come every 2 to 3 years to haul away the brine and crude oil.

When the gas leaves the property, it goes direct into the sales line and into people's homes!

Maybe down there they do things different. :roll:

Not likely. It may appear that way to you, but the gas pressure exiting the wellhead is not sufficient for transmission to the end user. Additionally, methyl mercaptan is added during the compression and transmission process to facilitate the discovery of leaks.

Here, our wells produce in excess of 200psi!

We have a 1 inch line from the one well that runs about 1400 feet to our house.
Regulator at the well reduces pressure down to 10psi for our line.
Regulator at the house reduces the 10psi to the standard pressure for home appliances.

What you’re describing is a line that provides free gas as a result of the well being on your property. That was a condition of the original ROW agreement for the gas wells. Much different than this...
