Pecos County rancher, Schuyler Wight, commented in a story with CBS7 (Midland-Odessa) about the increasing number of inactive oil and gas well blowouts on his land.
“On Monday, Wight sat at the site of a major plugging operation that he says has cost the RRC over $1 million to plug, destroyed nearly 40 acres, and created a temporary hole that would make a Red Bull cliff diver proud.
‘You know, when there’s a mess like this, it just upsets you,’ Wight said. ‘It’s really painful to watch.'”
