Well Done – Following Evacuations and Highway Closures, Natural Gas Well in Velma Capped

Duncan Banner reported: A natural gas and oil well in Velma, Okla. has been capped following a blowout that led to highway closures and evacuations over a threemile radius starting Friday evening and lasting into Saturday morning. According to Velma Fire Chief Jay Dumas, the situation was brought under control by first responders and Cudd Energy Services (Cudd) at approximately 3 p.m. Saturday afternoon. “It’s totally sealed off,” Dumas said. “Cudd is still up there monitoring the situation and if anything else [happens] we’ll respond out there.” “We had no recorded injuries, no loss of anything like that. — The community heard what we [asked] of them and they evacuated,“ Dumas said. “The failure was on the well head where the rods come up through it. It just was wore out and it finally blowed out.” said Dumas. “The well hadn’t been pumped in 10 months, they’d had it shut in, it pressured up. Something pressures up like that, it can fail.” For more on this story visit or click
