“We have a permanent flare at the gas plant. Because any time they over pressurize, then they burn a flare. It’s about 1½ miles up the valley [from us].  We were on a trip one time and we flew back into Grand Junction and flying over, that flare was the biggest landmark in Parachute. You could see that flare burning, although nothing compared to what they were doing up in North Dakota.  But the whole point is, they waste so much gas, if the price is low on market, it would even be lower, if they weren’t wasting all that gas. The rush to production has caused a tremendous amount of waste.”
