"Finishing" a gas well in Dimock, PA

This is the process of "finshing" a gas well in Dimock, PA as seen with the FLIR GasFindIR Optical Gas Imaging camera. According to the worker there, the valves on the wells are opened up to release pressure before the flaring process. Raw gas, as well as vaporized flack fluid and anything else down in the hole, blows out unregulated.. The odor was still in the air 1.5 miles away at the Dimock Post Office. The first 2 minutes of the footage was shot down the road from the source and driving up the road to the source, the well pad. The last of the footage shows the flaring pipes, one starts to release the gasses (and ???) but is not yet lit. Youtube: blackbart0930
