Phillips 66 Drilling and Pipeline Construction
Posted on Oct 12th, 2014 Comments (0)
At the Oct. 4th, Breakfast on the Bernard, Jonathan Hynson, Project Integration Manager, Phillips 66 Midstream, spoke about the injection wells and pipeline that are under construction on CR 506 and are part of the new expansion of the Freeport Terminal. This was clarification of the location of the wells from an earlier meeting with Phillips 66 on July 8, 2014.
Drilling of storage wells is currently underway at the Clemens facility. The wells will hold natural gas liquids (propane, butane, etc.) This process is known as salt leaching that forms caverns by pumping water into salt domes, dissolving the rock into a brine and leaving hollows behind. The drilling will continue through 2015.
The brine pipeline connects the Clemens facility to the brine wells being constructed just west of CR 506. The injection wells, drilled to a depth of 7,000 feet, will receive the salt water (brine) from the washing of the storage wells at the Clemens facility.
Congratulations to our newly-elected Officers

Fabulous Fundraiser Held Sat Night
Posted on Oct 8th, 2014 Comments (0)
Weather control was achieved through positive mental attitude as it was picture perfect when a group of approximately 125 friends of the river dined on roasted pig under a huge party tent and listened to steel drum music at the Friends of the River San Bernard “Escape to the Tropics” fundraiser on Sat Oct 4, 2014.
This was the first fundraiser held on the FOR Community Center grounds and successful enough to repeat in future years. 
See all the photos on
John Wallace, former FOR Director, on the right, assisted by Nelson Taylor, went whole hog and roasted two 40 lb. young pigs for the fundraiser. Here they prep the first pig, watched intently by Storm the Taylor’s black lab.
The pig, before and after roasting. When done, the skin is dark golden brown and very crispy. It’s rather like how a person looks after spending a day in the Texas sun.
Colorful Hawaiian shirts and tropical wear lined the tables at the island party. Everyone who attended had a bright lei placed around their neck upon arrival.
Sporting coconut bras, grass skirts and remarkable figures, even if they were printed on t-shirts, are fundraiser island girls, l., Ana Pogue, Claudia Pechacek and Sherrie Folger.
The fabulous night ended with party goers showing off their best moves on the outdoor dance floor groovin’ to the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s music of Vinyl Revival. See you next year!
