That looks familiar!!!! I had one of those almost in my back yard for 5 weeks this summer.
Drilled 6 holes, fracked 2, one 6K feet, one 10K feet deep. They are the first in our area, test holes.
It was actually in 2 parts, first was for a week, one flare, plus a blower, 60-100 foot flame, was daylight 24-7. Yes it was loud. You could easily see it 10 miles away. The first flame was probably twice as high as the picture.
Next was 2 flares for 30 days, no blower, bout 60 foot flame. Wasn't near as intense since there were 2 flares at once. And much quieter. (the one in the picture)
Story goes, the wells produced so well that one single flare couldn't keep up. After 7 days, hauled all the equipment away. Gas people said they didn't believe the results and to do it again. So in comes the equipment again, twice as much. End of story, the wells exceeded everyones expectations. ......... I can't wait for the royalty checks to start rolling in!!!
Also, they were getting crude oil out too, about 6 tractor trailers a day (maybe more) I saw getting hauled out.
