Note, too, the article confuses drilling (cutting the wellbore) with fracking (a different process in which the already drilled wellbore is fractured at depth by using fluid and a proppant--usually sand--to make fractures and shove the proppant in to hold them open).
I hope they find the problem, but I'd look in the clinic basement and storage areas of the clinic for leaking chemicals rather than waste my time blaming a drilling rig.
Maybe someone has a drug lab nearby and is looking to blame the oil and gas inductry.
I googled acetone as a fracking agent and came up with some articles that say its used for such. Of course I bow to your knowledge but are the articles wrong?
:: Nail polish remover? That’s acetone ::
Some remover is made with Ethyl Acetate, a known upper-respiratory irritant. And your right, neither is used in fracking fluids.
I wonder of there is a need for Acetone or Ethyl Acetate in the “smelting” business.
But they'd better BEWARE of them HJARNOR! eaters.
