Another Fatality in DeSoto Parish

There was a well blowout near Mansfield in DeSoto Parish yesterday morning that killed a man and left another critically injured.  The well, the Sumner 25H-1, is operated by Chesapeake Energy and located in the North Grand Cane Field (serial #239860).  SONRIS last reports it as fracked with flowback on September 25, and the paper reported it as producing.  The men were doing "routine maintenance" when the blowout occurred. 

Lest we all forget while we think of all the good things that come from the Haynesville Shale that the extraction of gas from these highly pressurized wells is a very dangerous job.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of these men.
