The Meaning of Paint Markings on Road

SWN/Geokinetics Operations Manager Mike Rhodes. (Photo: Cheryl Norrad)

We are currently using two colors of paint on the road to mark locations related to our activities.

1.  We use orange paint to show the location of geophones, which are basically listening devices for the seismic program.

2.  We use blue paint two ways:

a.  To make a mark on the road with a blue number beside it.  These marks and numbers indicate vibrator location points where siesmic sound waves will happen for a short period of time.

b.  To make a blue dash on the road without a number. This dash indicates where a vibrator location point would have been if a house or well WAS NOT located within the buffer area. It is basically a placeholder which we mark to minimize confusion over which point should be used.

All paint we use is biodegradable and will wash away after a few rainfalls. In addition to the paint, we also use GPS to mark locations.

If you need more information or would like to discuss it, please let me know.

SWN Operations Manager Overseeing Geokinetics

According to Geokinetics head office in Calgary, AB, SWN is it's client and the Geokinetics/SWN seismic exploration team has no formal office in Fredericton. You can reach Rhodes at the Ramada Inn in Fredericton, 506 460 5500. - ED.

Concerned resident near Stanley, Milda Titford, discovered road markings near her home 100 meters from the well recently. This is inside the designated 200 meter boundary regulation set by the province. She called Mike Rhodes about the matter this morning. Rhodes said he would fix it since crews are currently working nearby in the Durham area today, but as of yet, 2:53 EST, there has been no sign of anyone from SWN or Geokinetics come by to adjust the markings. - ED.


  1. "If we can't do the job correctly, we won't do the job at all." , sounds famialiar?

    and didnt Northrup say that the new regulations we're not passed in Legislation yet, but that SWN has agreed to follow all existing and pending regulations? So what is going on here?

  2. is there a video or even audio of Mike saying that the paint is biodegradable and will wash off? I'd love to get ahold of that, since the paint is still there after days of heavy rain
