2017855 Primary Facility 2011-11-09 Incident- Response to Accident or Event No Violations Noted Site visit was in response to incident notification by Nick Staffieri (Chevron) to Ed Ritzer (PA DEP Water Qualiy Specialist Supervisor at 07:43 on 11-9-11.Spill occurred do to the following: Haliburton had been cementing the well. Well was being cemented at 8 gpm. This rate caused an overflow of oil based mud at the well head. This overflow was not immediately recognized. Multiple levels of containment were breeched and the mud made it to the surface of the pad. A small area of stone on top of felt lined material was contaminated with this material. Most of the mud had been removed at the time of inspection either by vac'ing or through absorbents. Crews continued to lay absorbent material on any spilled material that had not yet been removed. Absorbent material was then being removed for proper disposal.

2037025 Primary Facility 2012-01-24 Incident- Response to Accident or Event No Violations Noted On Sun 1-22 at approximately 1530 a reported release of ~ 2 barrels of synthetic based drilling mud on to secondary containment located beneath rig. Today, spoke with Company man Brandon whom stated the release (he believes) was actually < 1 barrel occurred while pumping mud from frac tanks into shaker. Due to temperature change mud became viscous and clogged pump which back fed mud and ultimately lead to release onto containment. All released mud is believed to have been contained on secondary containment &immediately removed. No evidence of adverse environmental impact noted at time of this inspection. Based on above statement and visual inspection it appears that all mud was contained and immediately disposed of. Although some areas of the containment are missing berms and/or berms are in need of maintenance the area of release appears structurally sound and appears mud contained on containment. Follow up will be conducted upon removal of rig &containmnet to confirm mud release did not adversely impact grounds of commonwealth below contain

2045561 Primary Facility 2012-02-23 Incident- Response to Accident or Event In Compliance with Policy Inspection in response to notification of incident involving the release of approximately 3 gals diesel from pump truck. Well site Id sign, ES, ESCGP-1, and PPC plan present. Well tags present. Well(s) drilled not yet in production. One pit located onsite with sufficient freeboard. Spoke with Chevron compliance rep Curtis Small, whom stated that it is believed a check valve on the pump truck failed and while sitting on a grade the diesel line released approximately 3-5 gals of diesel on pad until truck driver realized a line was leaking. Driver immediately addressed the faulty valve/line, and operator began immediate cleanup. A dike was dug to contain release and then a visual cleanup of diesel stained areas began. During today’s inspection, operator had removed contaminated soils and placed in roll off box located onsite, it was also noted that environmental services lab currently onsite collecting soil samples to ensure all contaminated soils have been removed. Awating sample results from operator.

2137767 Primary Facility 2013-02-05 Incident- Response to Accident or Event In Compliance with Policy ADMIN INSPT- At approximately 1355 operator call SWRO to report spill and then call WQS.As per operator at approximately 1300hrs a service truck was repairing a flat tire on truck on well site backfilling drill pit, when a hydraulic line broke on repair truck and discharged ~1 gallon of hydraulic fluid onto snow covered/frozen pad. Chevron rep stated that a containment dike has been built surrounding release. The area has been covered with secondary contain and foam triangles, the contaminated "snow" will be placed within dike and covered. The area is highly marked to prevent third party disturbance and or coverage due to additional snow. On 2/6/13, contractors plan to remove impacted soils, place in sealed drums until final dispostion. Per opr spill quickly contained, minimal environ impact. Written response will be provided on what happend and clean up measures undertaken. Follow up inspection will be conducted to determine extent of environ.impact and examine clean up measures as well as restoration of impacted areas
2137909 Primary Facility 2013-02-06 Follow-up Inspection In Compliance with Policy Incident occurred near impoundment where crews were utilizing soil pile to fill in drill pit. Appears when hydraulic line broke from truck it sprayed ~ a gallon of fluid over a broad area of frozen/compacted snow It does not appear that the fluid puddled up or ran off site, nor does it appear to have infiltrated into the frozen snow, although a follow up inspection (upon completion of clean up) will be conducted to ensure no adverse environmental impacts were sustained as a result of this minor release. As per onsite contracting crew (Penn Mechanical) plans were to removed contaminated snow pile (placed on and covered with secondary containment liner) and place into barrels prior to final disposition. According to reps onsite plans were to remove snow later this afternoon. Department cautioned operator that higher temperatures are in the weather forecast; therefore they should expedite the cleanup process in order to prevent the potential for a subsequent pollution event.
2141385 Primary Facility 2013-02-12 Follow-up Inspection No Violations Noted ollow up inspection to reported release of hydraulic oil on 2/5/13. Department currently waiting on "official" spill report from operator. At the time of this inspection, all impacted/contaminated snow has been successfully picked up and contained in barrels placed on secondary containment. No adverse environmental impact ( i.e. to soils, grounds of the commonwealth) noted at the time of today’s inspection. Site has been adequately (temporarily) stabilized, no accelerated erosion or sedimentation issues noted. No violations noted operator appears to have appropriately and adequately responded to release according to current department policy. Department will follow up with operator to ensure that materials are properly disposed of.

Small via phone to discuss recent earth disturbance activities referenced above and well tag concerns.Mr. Small stated that lines were buried last week in order to vent annuli to prod tanks as annuli previously vented to temporary tanks. Dept rec'd area of earth disturbance is re-rocked to ensure stabilization is maintained.Mr. Small also stated new well tags will be installed immediately.
2241813 Primary Facility 2014-02-03 Routine/Partial Inspection No Violations Noted Multi-well pad. Marcellus. Site ID sign present, in compliance with Act 9 standards. E&S/PCSM plan, PPC plan, ERP at access road entrance. Gated.

2627992 Primary Facility 2017-08-22 Routine/Complete Inspection No Violations Noted Multi-well pad. At time of inspection, wells 9H, 8H, and 10H are drilled and appear equipped for production.
2826982 Primary Facility 2019-01-15 Routine/Complete Inspection No Violations Noted On 1/15/19 at 1127 hrs., I conducted a routine inspection of Chevron Appalachia, LLC's Buterbaugh 9H well (API 063-37020) in Green Twp., Indiana Co. Snow cover prevented proper evaluation of site stabilization. The well pad appears to be restored and permanently stabilized. Three production fluid tanks are located within adequate secondary containment. Three wells are drilled and equipped for production. A site ID sign and permit box are posted at the site entrance. It is unclear as to whether or not well tags are affixed to any of the well heads as the perimeter fence to the well pad is locked. The Department requests that the operator provide either a combination or key to one of the locks to facilitate access to the site. This should be sent to the Department inspector listed on this report. There are no violations noted for this inspection.
