Response or Details
Curtis Rueter will contact the operations people and investigate this incident. I suggested that in the future should operations like this be conducted again that Noble make arrangement to contact Mr. DeJong and inform him about the proposed work


There are no real meaningful regulations regarding toxic air emissions for the oil and gas industry, so it is no surprise that the oil company turned the switch back on to continue production. The oil and gas industry is EXEMPT from EPA laws designed to protect YOU!

It's an unregulated industry that is forcing itself on the lives of the innocent.  The victims have no rights.  The victims are you.
