Excerpt:

Methane plumes were identified and plotted by Picarro in Flower Mound. In conjunction with the Methane Mapping performed by Picarro in Flower Mound, on March 2, 2010, at 7:48 PM, an air sample was collected on Scenic Road in the Methane Plume identified by Picarro. On March 3, 2010, at 10:30 PM an air sample was collected near the Williams Tank Farm in the methane plume identified by Picarro.
A certified evacuated stainless steel Summa canister was used by Alisa Rich of Wolf Eagle Environmental, Flower Mound, TX., to collect the grab samples of air from the Methane Plumes.
The canister was analyzed by GD Air Testing, Inc., Richardson, TX., for Volatile Organic Compounds (TO-14), Tentatively Identified Compounds (GC/MS Scan) and Light Hydrocarbons including Methane (ASTM 1945).
