Last fall I posted a blog on how to locate natural gas underground with two coat hangers.https://sallyjadlow.com/how-to-find-natural-gas/?preview_id=4365&preview_nonce=bcb65bb450&preview=true
Many people thought I might have a screw loose. I applied to the state of Kansas for a drilling permit. Then I engaged a well driller. This past week they moved their drilling rig onto my property and placed the drilling rig at the place my coat hangers crossed.
This past Thursday afternoon I went to see how they were doing. If they didn’t hit gas by 600 feet, it would be declared a dry hole and I’d be out the drilling fees with no gas to show for it.
When I arrived in late afternoon they were at 318 feet. Shortly, the drill went to 325 feet. We hit a powerful natural gas deposit that will heat a house for many years to come!
Someone asked me how I knew to look for gas in this manner. I Googled it, of course. Isn’t that how you learn lots of stuff?
