a 5 page dep violation letter and more marsh creek questions

Marsh Creek a few days ago now.

On August 14, 2020 I wrote about Marsh Creek being fouled because of Energy Transfer/Sunoco/Sunoco Logistics.

This evening I received a VERY interesting letter:

I will be honest a few points jumped out at me like 11 & 12 & 15 respectively and make me wonder how long this has been going on?????

From the letter:

  1. Drilling logs indicate that from June 2, 2020, through June 6, 2020, over 20,000
    gallons of drilling fluid were reported as lost. Please explain how the daily volume of
    lost drilling fluid is calculated. Also, please explain how Sunoco determines when the
    drill has experienced a loss of circulation. Further, please explain why a 500-gallon
    fluid loss was reported in a Loss Prevention Report on March 3, 2020, but the June
    fluid losses were not so reported.
  1. Drilling logs indicate that on August 8, 2020, 17,000 gallons of mud were mixed and
    the washover tool was tripped out of the bore. Please explain the rationale for these
    actions and the drilling conditions/observations at that time.
  1. Explain why grout was used in the drilling mud on July 9, 2020, and July 10, 2020.
    Was this a labeling mistake or was grout pumped downhole?

Erin Brocovich has even taken an interest in our plight:

Does Energy Transfer/Sunoco/ Sunoco Logistics realize the national stage is being set as more and more people are becoming aware?

This is one of my favorite protest signs from I am not sure when:
