You all have seen, I’m sure, these pipes running in the TxDOT right-of-way to get water to the rigs and for fracking. I had trouble with them when they tore up the payment leading to my driveway.
They would not fix it, and I asked TXDOT for help since it was in their right-of-way, but they were no help. They seemed to be more concerned with helping the company than a resident of Texas. I finally contacted Marathon Oil, since they are their wells, and low and behold, the next day I have people falling all over themselves to help.
I just wanted to let Marathon know how much I appreciate the help. As a footnote, I learned through a little birdie that the district engineer in Corpus told the company they did not have to fix this, since it was in their right-of-way.So much for taking care of the people who pay him?
