What drilling sounds like

This gives a good idea of the constant droning that's heard far away from the Northridge site despite the 'sound wall'. It will continue 24/7 until the drilling is completed. As I shot video and photos, a man in a white truck came to check me out. We had a pleasant, and long conversation. He wanted me to note that no diesel power is used for the drilling.

The sight and sound from the Sheep Draw trail on the other side of the pad. According to Synergy the sound will be worse during the actual fracturing period, slated to begin in July, which will also see heavy truck traffic into and from the site.
