ABCA ask Evan Junker the community relations guy with Williams on 4/9/10 Q: Define fulfill the lease agreement. Agreement with who? ( This question was asked based on a hand delivered letter received a week prior. But the answer applies to runner susan's question.)
Evan Junker's response:
Each mineral owner signs a contract called a lease with Williams. Each lease has a series of terms and conditions. Some of the terms and conditions involve time limits on when production must be established. That is what is driving us to get the pipelines in place.
Therefore, the deadline is fast approaching as Mockingbird/ Williams is moving rapidly on installing pipeline. For those of you who want to know more here is some interesting info on the pipeline. For example, how it is not even permitted through the Railroad Commission (RRC) and it will NOT be inspected by the RRC.
On March 9th, 2010 this question was asked to a permitting representative with the RRC.
Why does Mockingbird's, Argyle pipeline not have a permit with the RRC?
At the January "Town Hall" meeting in Lantana the Denton Record Chronicle reported:"In the final half hour, some residents asked which state officials had rule-making authority over the proposed wastewater pipelines. Williams has told local public officials that they plan to collect wastewater at centralized facilities and then pump it to the injection site. State officials said no one had rule-making authority over those pipelines.
