DILLINER, Pennsylvania AP —

Crews have replaced and secured the head of a third natural gas well in southwestern Pennsylvania near two others that caught fire, killing a worker last month.

Scott Perry, deputy secretary for the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, tells the (Washington) Observer-Reporter (http://bit.ly/1krhJwe) that the third well head was replaced on Saturday.

Another Chevron well at the same drilling pad exploded and caught fire Feb. 11 in Greene County’s Dunkard Township, killing Ian McKee, a technician working there at the time. Another well nearby caught fire three days later, before the first could be extinguished.

The third well whose head was replaced Saturday had not been leaking and did not catch fire. It was secured as a precaution.
