2019 10 28: The Silent Killer Strikes Again: Texas oilfield worker killed after exposure to sour gas at Aghorn Energy site in Odessa, Wife (mother of 3) dies checking on him, Two children exposed but survived. Lawsuit filed.
2017 Ontario: In Norfolk, leaking abandoned industry *sour* gas wells forces exclusion zone for vehicles, vessels, and evacuation of 22 homes. In nearby Town of Jarvis (population 2,300), unusually high methane readings, firefighters test gas levels at every home. Compare to grossly negligent, “No Duty of Care,” Charter-violating, lying, spying, heinous AER covering-up industry’s deadly gas leaks, even when sour.
Updated Nov 12, 2019: Shortly after Will Koop posted his clip (embedded below), Encana removed its Grand Prairie Emergency Response Plan (ERP) from the Internet. It’s vital that such important documents relating to public health and safety are accesible, so it has been uploaded here (takes time to load).
It had been accessed at https://www.encana.com/pdf/communities/canada/grande-prairie-area-erp.pdf on Sept 30, 2019 to add to the clip.

Encana’s Vexatious Frack Flaring in Northwest Alberta 11:36 Min. by Will Koop, Oct 17, 2019, BC Tap Water Alliance
Featured in this video by Will Koop (B.C. Tap Water Alliance, and Stop Fracking British Columbia, www.bctwa.org), is Encana Corporation’s sour gas flaring near Grande Prairie Alberta on September 26, 2019.
Questions are raised about why the Alberta Government and its 100% industry funding Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) fails to require petroleum licensees to monitor and report to the public on the composition of gases and chemicals being vented and flared in Alberta.
If possible, please watch in 1080 p for best viewing.
Comments to the video:
To all the overpaid top management at Encana. I have now come to the conclusion as a shareholder that Encana is another Canadian CA run company with overpaid incompetent top management. The top management and board of directors has totally failed at protecting and growing shareholder value $$… So if you doubt what I’m saying just look at the one year stock chart as proof. If I ran company in the US like this I would’ve been fired. Shame on all of you incompetent failures at Encana. Remember excellence is never an accident failure is a choice.
Video is well done!
This video re-confirms that Alberta is an Oil & Gas State. Corporate Profits rule over a clean environment and peoples health. Koop provides the inside story on this flaring controversy that is shocking. Wake up Alberta Encana does not care about your children.
Sour Gas damages the brain, even at very low levels:
Sour Gas Concentration (ppm)/Symptoms/Effects
0.01-1.5 ppm/Odor threshold (when rotten egg smell is first noticeable to some). …
2-5 ppm/Prolonged exposure may cause nausea, tearing of the eyes, headaches or loss of sleep. Airway problems (bronchial constriction) in some asthma patients.
