Fracking trucks within Fredericton and surrounding area

Photo: Stephanie Merrill, Conservation Council of New Brunswick

Shale gas "fracking" trucks were sighted in the Jemseg and Fredericton area just before the weekend. On Thursday, September 8, 2011, a convoy of large trucks were observed on the Trans-Canada Highway around Jemseg at 4:30 pm and they were headed towards Fredericton.

Stephanie Merrill, Freshwater Program Coordinator, Conservation Council of New Brunswick) drove by these vehicles and noted some had tanks carrying liquid nitrogen (a common fracking fluid), while others had unidentified infrastructure gear.

Merrill noted that the trucks bore Alberta license plates and that they were clearly marked "BJ Services". This company specializes in hydraulic fracturing services and technologies and, in the past, their trucks have conducted hydraulic fracturing and other services in the Penobsquis area.

On late Friday morning, September 9, 2011, the trucks were seen traveling west along Knowledge Park Drive in the UNB Woodlot and turned left onto Regent Street toward New Maryland.

    Are you and the D'Arcy's now going to demand that all fracking vehicles be banned from the roads?
