Prior to Sept, 2004 data translation this spill Lead_DEC Field was "FG"
10/3/97 MARK HANS CALLED. REQUESTED INFORMATION ON HOW TO HANDLE SALT BRINE SPILLS. I TOLD HIM IT DEPENDS ON SIZE OF SPILL AND
IMPACTS.
10/6/97 SPOKE TO CHRIS MILLER WITH MINERALS. HE SAID THE SPILL WAS 15,000 GALLONS OF A CONCENTRATED BRINE FROM NATIONAL FUELS
PRODUCTION FACILITY ON INDEPENDENCE RD IN WILLING. HE SAID THAT WATER WELLS MAY BE IMPACTED. MR. MILLER WILL INSPECT SITE AND
GET BACK TO ME.
10/6/97 SPOKE TO TANYA ALEXANDER WITH NATIONAL FUEL GAS. SHE SAID THE WORK WAS ALL DONE OVER THE WEEKEND. THERE WAS WATER WELL
SAMPLING DONE. CHRIS CEJ WILL BE ON SITE TODAY INSPECTING DAMAGE. POSSIBLE THAT THE CREEK WAS IMPACTED. TANYA SAID THAT

Copyright 2009 Toxics Targeting, Inc. November 02, 2009

Page 4

RESULTS WILL BE IN TODAY OR TOMORROW. SHE SAID THAT SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 15,000 AND 20,000 GALLONS OF BRINE WERE SPILLED. WE WILL
WAIT FOR REPORTS.
10/7/97 CHRIS MILLER WITH MINERALS INSPECTED THE SITE ON 10/6/97 AND SAID THAT THE BRINE RAN THROUGH THE FIELD FROM THE NATIONAL
FUEL SITE TO THE DITCH TO THE CULVERT TO THE SCRUB BRUSH TO THE CREED WHICH IS A TRIBUTARY TO THE GENESSEE RIVER. THE VEGETATION
WAS KILLED IN THIS PATH. THERE WERE 3 SAFETY FEATURES ON THE SYSTEM SO THAT IT WOULD NOT FAIL. IF THE PRESSURE GOT TO 100 LBS,
THERE WOULD BE A BY PASS AND THE RUPTURE DISK WOULD FAIL AND BRINE WOULD FLOW TO THE HOLDING TANK. THE RUPTURE DISK FAILED AT 10
LBS & NOTHING SHUT DOWN SO THE SYSTEM CONTINUED TO FLOW. NATIONAL FUEL IS CHECKING THE SYSTEM AND WILL PROBABLY ELIMINATE THE
RUPTURE DISK. THE LANDOWNERS ARE OK WITH NATIONAL FUEL RESOLUTION. ONE LANDOWNER HAS COWS THAT DRINK FROM THE CREEK. NATIONAL
FUEL WILL BUY A NEW FENCE & PROVIDE WATER FOR THE COWS. CHRIS MILLER FELT THAT THE BEST SOLUTION TO THE PATH OF DEAD VEGETATION
IS TO LEAVE IT TO GROW BACK NEXT SUMMER.
10/16/97 RECD NATIONAL FUEL REPORT OF THE INCIDENT. THE SITE IS A SPDES PERMITTED FACILITY. BRIAN HOURIGAN WILL ADDRESS ANY
FUTURE CONCERNS AT THIS SITE. THE SITE CAN BE CLOSED. NO FURTHER WORK REQUIRED.

CALLER STATES THAT THERE IS DEAD VEGETATION ALONG THE ROADSIDE DITCH, INCLUDING GRASS AND A FLOWER BED, ALONG WHERE RAINWATER
RUNOFF FOLLOWED THROUGH A ROADSIDE DRAINAGE DITCH. NO ODOR WAS NOTED. THE DEAD VEGETATION WAS NOTED 6-8 FEET FROM THE CENTER
LINE OF THE DRAINAGE DITCH AND AT SOME POINTS FLOWED UNDER A FENCE LINE INTO A YARD. THE IMPACTED AREA IS ESTIMATED TO BE
APPROXIMATELY 110 FEET LONG. THE SOURCE IS UNKNOWN. TUCKER CALLS BACK LATER TO SAY THAT THE TOWN REBUILT THE GRAVEL ROAD AND
BRINED IT ABOUT 10 DAYS AGO. HE SUSPECTS THAT THE ONLY RECENT RAIN OF JUST A FEW DAYS AGO MAY HAVE WASHED OUT THE SALT WHICH
PROBABLY BURNED THE LAWN.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------DEC Investigator Remarks:
6/12/07 LINDENFELSER MET WITH EDIE TUCKER WHO SHOWED BURNT LAWN NOT ONLY ON GRASSED SHOULDER AT WEST END OF PROPETY BUT ALSO
UNDER FENCE AND ONTO SEVERAL SQUARE FEET OF LAWN. PL ADVISES THAT RAIN SHOULD FLUSH OUT SALT RESIDUE ALLOWING REPLANTING OF
GRASS. THE ADJACENT FLOWER BED IS UNAFFECTED AND SHOULD REMAIN SO AS IT IS RAISED. BECAUSE ROAD RUNOFF ONLY OCCURRED IN ONE AREA
WHERE THE DITCH IS VERY SHALLOW AND ESCAPES ITS COURSE, PL SUGGESTED BUILDING UP LAWN AT FENCE TO DEFLECT WATER BACK TO DITCH.
GRASS IN DITCH DOWNGRADIENT AND ALONGSIDE TUCKER ROAD NORTH OF AREA WAS SIMILARLY BURNED. GRAVEL AT EDGES OF ROAD IS LIGHTLY
FROSTED WITH SALT RESIDUE. PL AGREES WITH DENNIS TUCKER THAT BURN IS PROBABLY FROM SALT APPLICATION FOR DUST CONTROL.

6/13/07 LINDENFELSER CALLS THURSTON DEPUTY HWY SUPT RICHARD GAUSS AND ASKS HIM TO LIMIT BRINE APPLICATION. GAUSS SAYS THAT THEY
RECENTLY REBUILT THE GRAVEL ROAD WHICH REQUIRED A HEAVIER THAN NORMAL APPLICATION OF BRINE TO STABILIZE THE LOOSE GRAVEL AS PER
STANDARD PRACTICES. THIS WAS FOLLOWED BY A LATER LIGHTER APPLICATION WHEN THE WORK IS DONE. THIS REBUILDING IS NOT OFTEN DONE
AND SO THE BRINE LOADING WILL NOT SOON RECUR. GAUSS SAID THEY WILL RE-CUT THE DITCH TO CHANNEL RUNOFF AWAY FROM LAWN.
NO FURTHER ACTIONS BY SPILLS IS NECESSARY.

Drilling station hit a gas pocket-caught rig on fire and 3000 gallon diesel tank
(Note: this tank found to be intact and not leaking. Another 300 gallon tank directly on the drill rig lost hose and was actual
cause of 200 gallon release-ctr 3/19/09)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------DEC Investigator Remarks:
Madison County 911 reported that a 3000 gallon AST might have released during an explosion at this location. Product was released
next to the drill rig and via the run off from that nights rain had been carried partially down the south slope of the site. It
did not reach the near by stream. Nornew hired Environmental Products and Services who placed absorbent materials to further
contain and collect any petroleum and further protect the stream. The fire was put out about 14:30. EPS assisted the on site crew
in pumping a pooled area where the diesel had collected into a tank on site and then off loaded into EPS vac truck. The site was
inspected and any visible product was soaked up with absorbent pads. Inspection of the 3000 gallon tank showed it was intact and
the diesel spill actually came from melted piping from approximate 300 gallon tank. Less than 300 gallons was spilled.
03-20-08 the petroleum remediation continued on the slope where EPS is removing any petroleum affected soils, hay bales, affected

Copyright 2009 Toxics Targeting, Inc. November 02, 2009

organic debris and absorbent boom no longer needed.
There appears to be no threat to the ground or surface waters at or near this location due to this incident. Madison County
Health Department was advised. The closest wells are well over 1000 feet away and not in the apparent groundwater direction.
Soil around the well head rig shows petroleum contamination and was still leaching diesel fuel on 3/23 which was pumped off to on
site tank for disposal separate from their drill-brine- soap mix water. Nornew is going to put down a liner as a barrier before
placing new drill rig. The remaining contamination will be removed after drilling is completed.
3/26/09- Another drill rig in place and operating. Side of hill shows no signs of petroleum. All contaminated hay was removed and
replaced. Clean boom placed at the end of previously contaminated area as precaution.
Ponded area was free of product and sheen. Liner under drill rig was in place. Pit around well head had oil in it but reported by
Linda Collart to be secure and will not contaminate aquifer below. Plan to remove remaining contaminated soils when rig finished
up early next week.
Inspection on slope in area where the side had a substantial slide, showed some product present in the water flowing under burlap
and straw, placed for erosion control measures. Also slightly down gradient, soil has odors of petrleum which flowed from the
previously described area and EPS PID read 147 ppm in soil. These areas are ordered to be removed and remediated.
Mid April, DL Responder observes contractor removal of remaining contaminated soil and investigation by test pit. He reported
that no or very low levels (below 37ppm on PID) were seen and where observed, near the wellhead (TP-3) the area was excavated and
resampled.
May 09 When report is submitted and a site sketch requested, it became evident that the samples were not handled representivly,
as test pits soil samples were combined improperly after DL observed work. DEC requested that the contractor return to site and
resample in 3 discrete locations. CTR Responder noted that there was still some remaining contamination near the well head and
requested further soil to be removed at this location. Further analytical showed all levels now below TAGM recommended clean up
levels. All contaminated soil and debris have been properly disposed of at High Acers Landfill. CTR 5-26-09

08/09/01 JFO ON SITE MET WITH DAN WILLIAMS OF HUMPHREY TOWN GARAGE. AN INACTIVE BUCKEYE PIPELINE CROSSES PUMPKIN HOLLOW RD.
WATER ACCUMULATED IN THE DITCH WITH APPROX 1 GALLON OF CRUDE OIL ON IT. NO MORE OIL ACCUMULATED OVERNIGHT. WE PLACED A BOOM IN
THE DITCH AND I GAVE THEM PADS TO PICK UP THE OIL. NO MORE DIGGING NEEDS TO BE DONE IN THIS AREA. THEY WILL INSTALL THE CULVERT
AND BACKFILL. I SPOKE WITH JOHN HOFFMAN OF MINERALS IN OLEAN. HE SAID THE LINES WERE INACTIVE AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN REMOVED.
THIS WAS A SHORT SECTION OF LINE THAT WAS PROBABLY LEFT IN BECAUSE IT WAS UNDER THE ROAD. A NEW PIPELINE IS GOING TO BE
INSTALLED IN THE SAME AREA (MILLENIUM PIPELINE). THEY WILL DEAL WITH ANY CONTAMINATION THEN. MR WILLIAMS WILL CALL ME IF THERE
IS ANY PROBLEMS WHEN THEY INSTALL THE CULVERT.
08/20/01 JFO CALL TO DAN WILLIAMS. HE SAID THAT THEY INSTALLED THE CULVERT WITH NO PROBLEMS. I WILL CHECK SITE THE NEXT TIME I

A MINI-EXCAVATOR ARRIVED AT THE SITE ALONG WITH A FOLDED PIECE OF POLY PLASTIC SHEET; MIKE SAID THEY WERE GOING TO DIG UP THE
PUDDLES BUT PL SUGGESTED THEY ABSORB THE LIQUID FIRST; MIKE SAID THAT D.C.RAUSHCER’S (WATERLOO, NY) VAC TRUCK WHICH HAD ALREADY
PUMPED DOWN THE TANKS WAS COMING BACK AFTER THEY DELIVER THE BRINE TO AUBURN; WE AGREED THAT THEY WOULD VACUUM UP THE LIQUID
BEFORE DIGGING INTO THE SOIL AND POSSIBLY PUNCTURING WHATEVER SEAL WAS PREVENTING THE PUDDLES FROM SOAKING IN; THERE WAS ALSO
STAINED CRUSHED STONE AROUND THE TANKS AND DUE EAST OUTSIDE OF THE FENCED AREA WHERE THE BRINE HAD SOAKED IN.
PL ASKED THAT THEY KEEP THE EXCAVATION OPEN TILL MONDAY WHEN WE COULD RETURN TO DOCUMENT IT.
LANPHEAR SAID THAT THE HIGH LEVEL ALARM IN THE BRINE TANK FAILED TO SHUT DOWN THE BRINE PUMP FROM THE WELL; THEY HAD RECENTLY
INCREASED THE PUMPING OF NATURAL GAS AND THE ATTENDING BRINE SO THE TANKS WERE FILLING UP FASTER THAN THEIR HAULER, RAUSCHER CO.,
COULD HAUL IT AWAY.

CHEMICALS THAT ARE COSTLY AND RECYCLED AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. NEW CHEMICALS ARE ADDED AS NEEDED. SOME CHEMICAL IS SORBED TO THE
DRILL CUTTINGS, SOME IS LOST INTO THE FORMATION AND SOME IS LOST TO BREAK DOWN IN PROCESS. WEB SEARCH FOR MSDS WAS MARGINALLY

Due to unk reasons the product spilled to soil.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------DEC Investigator Remarks:
Nornew safety officer, Doug Stebbins reported that drillers on site spilled less than 5 of sudsy material on ground, which then
flowed down an embankment. Nornew workers soaked up all excess fluid with absorbent materials.
MSDS lists Durafoam as methanol 3-7% and the undiluted product as ignitable with a waste number of U154 for ignitable waste.
Norew estimates diluted material which was spilled to ground was in ratio or 40:2, water to Durafoam, respectively. Therefore
Nornew is required to sample remaining soil for ignitability.

Copyright 2009 Toxics Targeting, Inc. November 02, 2009

Soil analtical received 5/29/09 indicates that it is non ignitable therefor not hazardous. Also not petroleum. Minerals inspector
had concerns that may affect down gradient livestock spring so Nornew required to sample. Showned nd for MBAS. Will repeat
sampling in one week to confirm. Madison Co Health Advised. Follow up by Mineral staff.

12/18/07 FG SPOKE TO RUSS BISS AND MINERALS. THEY REQUESTED THAT SPILLS GET ACCESS TO THE PROPERTY AND THEN WE WILL DECIDE
ABOUT THE NEED FOR REMOVAL OF THE BEAVER DAM. MINERALS PROVIDED A PROPERTY MAP WITH CONTACT INFORMATION ON THE OWNERS.
FG SPOKE TO JESSI BEST WHO SAID HE SPOKE TO A TRAPPER WHO CAUGHT A BEAVER BUT SAID THE PELT WAS USELESS BECAUSE THERE WAS SO MUCH

IT DOESN’T CONTINUOUSLY MOVE THE WATER OUT, AS A RESULT, THE WELL MAY OCCASIONALLY "BURP" OUT A LARGER QUANTITY OF WATER. THE
BRINE STORAGE TANK ITSELF HAD 62 INCHES OF WATER IN IT FRIDAY. WHEN THE OPERATOR DROVE BY SUNDAY, SOAP SUDDS WERE COMING OUT OF
THE BRINE STORAGE TANK (SOAP USED IN THE WELL TO HELP WITH WATER REMOVAL). THE OPERATOR CHECKED THE SYSTEM AND FOUND THE TANK
FULL AND THE HOLDING POND DRAIN OPEN. FORTUNA IMMEDIATELY PLUGGED THE DRAIN AND HAD THE HOLDING POND, STREAM PUDDLE AND TANK
PUMPED OUT. WHILE ON SITE TODAY, THE STREAM PUDDLE HAD REFILLED, ABOUT A DOZEN DEAD MINNOWS WERE FLOATING IN IT. ABOUT 20 FEET
