Ambient air quality monitoring was conducted for nine days during a natural gas well fire at Lanco 7H well pad in Greene County, PA. The well is owned by Chevron Appalachia. Ambient air monitoring samples collected during the event were analyzed for 57 toxic air pollutants and none of those pollutants were detected at concentrations that would indicate a potential acute or short-term health concern for emergency responders or a “typical” local resident. The results did indicate higher concentrations of several pollutants (Propene, Heptane and 1, 2, 4-Trimethylbenzene) when compared to other areas of the Commonwealth where samples are systematically collected. These concentrations may be associated with the incident but that cannot be verified relative to the event.
