  • Clark County, Bethel Township Water Well Rig Fire

    <p>Just last week Crabtree Well Drilling was drilling a new water well for a new home construction in Clark County, Bethel Township when they encountered a gas pocket in the Ordovician limestone and shale. The drill bit had penetrated below 300 feet in depth when the gas pocket in the subsurface was encountered. This is an unusual event since there is no known oil and gas fields documented along the Cincinnati arch. Also, there are no known gas pipelines in the area. As a result, the origin of the fire was due to natural causes. Crabtree Drilling lost a rig valued at $750, 000. View the full post for the official news story!</p>
