After the very upsetting kitchen table meeting with Mr. Rollock we drove out to the field to remove the 'quad ramp' that Dad found earlier that morning just laying in the stubble between W3 and W1. Despite several attempts to find the rightful owner, both EnCana reps and EnCana's surveyors denied ownership. How does one lose a quad ramp and not notice?
To me it seemed obvious that the owner would be incriminating himself because who ever lost the quad ramp would know they did so while driving off-lease, or in other words...TRESPASSING.
While in the area I took a few photographs of the lease conditions of W1 and then we drove over to W5.
April 20 - W1 - Lease Conditions
April 20 - W5 - Lease Conditions
Remember, I had just heard repeatedly from EnCana's panel of experts during the four day Torrington Hearing that they never access a lease during soft or wet soil conditions unless there is an emergency!!
This collection of photographs that I took on April 10th clearly shows that our local oil/gas boys are indifferent to the environmental conditions of our neighbourhood during a very wet period in early April.
What was the emergency??
We didn't treat our land or our local public roads this way, why should we be expected to put up with anything less from a 'tenant' ?
Note the stuck quad !!!
