I have personally seen and heard a
compressor with alot of wells feeding
into it blow up in flames. It happened
in the middle of the nite on a Sunday.
I could hear the hiss of gas spewing
first, by the time I got to the door
and looked outside, about a 1/4 mile or
less from the house, I saw a big ball of
fire, that was hugh, in a wooded area
where the compressor was. It looked like
the world was on fire, it was so high
and wide you could see it from miles away.
I was scared to death. This was on acreage
folks, if it had been in an urban area
an evacuation would have been necessary.

To Stacy...if you have never seen a story about a gas pipeline explosion then you are either blind or disallusioned. Stories abound on the internet concerning gas pipeline explosions.

Are you serious? When is the last time that you have seen a pipeline explode? Where was it it etc...? I love that we are a free thinking society, however, if you don't know what you are talking about, then don't speak. I have worked in the oil and gas fields for 17 years. The only time that have I seen a pipline catch on fire, was due to a welder. Let's not start the paranoia unless you know what you are talking about!


Gas pipeline explodes and flames shoot up 600' to 700' into the air.
