The 27-acre property bought by TexCom is in the middle of the old Conroe Oil Field, which had some of the largest drilling activity back in the 30’s and 40’s as any other location in Texas.

In sworn testimony, the expert geologist for TexCom discounted every known geological map showing faults in this property, stating in his opinion they were all wrong. This was in spite of the fact that the most recent map, dated 2005, was done by Exxon, the owner and operator of that oil field since the 1920's.

Some problems with this site include:
Directly below the proposed drilling site in Montgomery County lie 3 major aquifers that
provide drinking water for all or part of 54 counties in South Texas. These are the Chicot, Evangeline, and Jasper aquifers. Toxic chemicals will be injected under high pressure into cavities below these precious freshwater sources. View Aquifer Map.

This site fails every criterion established for the safe operations of Class I injection wells.
