"We have to deal with the realities of urban drilling. If you’re in Irion County, what you have to do is make sure you close the gates, and the goats or the sheep and the cattle don’t get out. But if you’re in downtown Fort Worth or Tarrant County or Collin County or Denton County . . . you have other things to deal with that are not a natural thing for the oil and gas industry."
