June 4, 2015: UNNC Oil Meeting

WHEN:          Thursday, June 4, 2015 at 7pm.

WHERE:        CD10 Field Office (1819 S. Western Enter on S. Manhattan Place, just one block west of Western Avenue.)

WHY:            NEW INFORMATION - Ask UNNC to change its position to now oppose any installation of a CEB 800 gas burner

  Please see the powerpoint for NEW information about the FMOG project at the Murphy Oil site and parkland at 27th Street and St. Andrews!   BACKGROUND: New information revealed by FMOG during the May 12, 2015, Zoning Administrator hearing about the Gas Burner(CEB800):
  1. It appears that FMOG is planning a significantly different project than previously submitted.
  2. The installation of the burner in the park will provide the capacity to burn ALL gas (approx. 1 Million cubic feet of gas a day) produced at the Murphy (Gramercy & Adams) and the Jefferson/Budlong Drill Sites.
  3. FMOG presented new information during the May 12 hearing indicating that within 2 years it will lose the "historical exemption" under which it sells gas to the Gas Company and thus its ability to sell gas will be substantially impaired, creating a "new urgnecy" for FMOG to have the burner.
  4. We have found that the ending of the "historical exemptions" has been known since September 2011.
  5. Burning up to 1 million cubic feet of gas per day without generating electricity or anything useful is a huge waste.  It contradicts the Mayor's new sustainability plan. We should not accept it and thus need to ask UNNC to oppose it.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
  • Attend the UNNC Meeting and ask UNNC to change its position to oppose installation of the CEB 800 burner.
  • Inform the community.  See the ppt presentation and outline of the new information about the burner.
  • Write to Council President Wesson and the Zoning Administrator to oppose FMOG's project.
