More fracking problems have been reported in Colorado. According to various media sources, a fire broke out yesterday morning at a gas well where fracking, aka hydraulic fracturing, was taking place. The well, located in Garfield County, is operated by Williams.

Garfield County, saw the second most drilling permits issued in Colorado in 2010, and Williams is the most active drilling company there.

Another firm, Antero Resources is looking to increase its drilling in the Garfield County communities of Silt and Battlement Mesa. Antero’s plan to increase drilling density in two Silt subdivisions from one well per 40 acres to one well per 10 acres has resulted in an outcry among some residents who say existing drilling has already fouled air and could endanger water supplies.

The Williams well fire broke out in the Beaver Creek area, about eight miles south of Rifle. According to a report from, eyewitnesses on scene say they heard two explosions and then saw flames shooting into the air. Fortunately, no one was hurt, and the fire was put out by 6:30.

The workers on the scene of the fire were beginning the day’s fracking when the fire started. A spokesperson for Williams told that smaller fires associated with fracking, in which millions of gallons of water and chemicals are injected deep underground under high pressure, are not uncommon. Water that is pumped out of the wells can contain flammable hydrocarbons, which can on occasion ignite.
