Above: The aftermath of an large explosion near Gillett, Karnes Co, Texas, on Oct. 8, 2013. — KENS Chopper 5 photo (Rumor of yet another disposal well explosion last week in Dimmit Co–that story has gone down the memory-hole quick-like.)
OR: Should one ask, will Manchester come to San Antonio?
Check out the proposed pipeline from Eagle Ford Shale (specifically Karnes City in Karnes Co) to the Calumet plant on the Southside, so they can increase their refining at that plant. They’ve been refining fracked oil/gas at that refinery since late last year, hauling it by truck.
This is the refinery in the 7800 block of S Presa, just south of SE Military Dr & just east of the San Jose Cemetery that most recently exploded back in 2010. NuStar (a Valero spin-off) then sold it to Calumet early this year.
The concern is that we are witnessing the first stage of Southside SA retooled into another Houston East End energycorp cesspool.
Even so, it might not be first a City issue. Applying logic to the players engaged, one can as easily project the new pipeline terminating around the “Elmendorf” crude oil tank facility–whence crude oil is already piped to the refinery.
Bexar County Commissioners Court must be held accountable for facilitating a Southside SACRIFICE ZONE.
