Read the letter please.

The pressure problems that indicated leaks between the active salt solution caverns and the caverns proposed for LPG were found by US SALT. Not Crestwood.

Crestwood sold the US SALT salt mines in 2017 to Kissner for $225,000,000.

US SALT was solution salt mining when they discovered the problem.

Guess they didn't want their investment to explode.

Well Data Confidentiality

Basis for Holding Drilling Data Confidential


Certain data filed with the Division of Mineral Resources are held confidential according to Section 23-0313 of the Oil, Gas and Solution Mining Law and Section 87-2 of the New York State Public Officers Law.

Public Disclosure Standards for Drilling Data Never exempted from public disclosure:

permit applications
information on the total depth of wells
well plugging records

Automatically held confidential for six months:
well logs and samples
well drilling and completion reports
directional surveys
annual well (oil and gas production) reports (confidentiality ends July 1 following the calendar year to which the reports apply)

Held confidential for six months with possible extension to two years:
well logs and samples
well drilling and completion reports
directional surveys

ECL Section 23-0313 and Technical Guidance Memorandum 90-3 describe the procedures for requesting a two year extension.

May be defined as trade secrets eligible for continuous confidential status:

detailed analysis, opinion, interpretation or evaluation of factual data, such as reservoir study or analysis records, reports or studies of a formation or geologic phenomenon, or some other significant topic

Technical Guidance Memorandum 90-3 describes the guidelines for requesting "trade secret" status.

Never publicly disclosed without operator's consent:

brine production reported by individual solution mining operators

Well data confidentiality
OH BOY are you confused. Crestwood AIN'T MINING or drilling new wells and aren't producing anything.
Did you even READ it
Certain data filed with the Division of Mineral Resources are held confidential according to Section 23-0313 of the Oil, Gas and Solution Mining Law and Section 87-2 of the New York State Public Officers Law.

I did read the letter, nowhere did it say a leak or multiple leaks were confirmed. Unless " MAY and POSSIBLE " now have a new meaning. Also, a possible leak between wells not included in the storage plan does not necessarily mean all the wells leak or will eventually leak. Besides even if gas did leak into a solution well doesn't mean the gas will leak out into the atmosphere.
