On the connection ramp from I-635 to SH 121. In 2007 and 2008 there were numerous drilling rigs in the area, drilling for natural gas in the Barnett Shale. When prices collapsed in the second half of 2008, drilling stopped. The wells which were drilled were reportedly poor producers. (Photo date: 29-July-2007)
This drilling rig was on the southeast corner of TX 121 and I-635. (Photo date: 4-October-2007)
