I hope they are truthful about it being only a few barrels.
I wouldn't count on it, especially if there is enough to be running down a creek to San Island and still leaving a sheen on the water.

Every time I drive through that region it's wild to me they have the lines linking pump jacks just layed out over the desert.

Clearly, you have spent little time in the Unitah Basin.

At least when they're laid out above-ground, you know where they spring a leak immediately, underground they'll leak for years before anyone knows it (if ever) and contaminate the groundwater...

I spent a weekend there 10+ years ago since then I drive through there probably once every two years.

Makes sense but it's still odd to see pipes full or petroleum seemingly half heartedy tossed out accross the desert.
