Judge rules against making fracking ingredients public

 A judge in Casper has sided with the state of Wyoming and ruled against environmentalists who sought to make public the lists of ingredients that go into hydraulic fracturing fluids.
 
     Environmental groups had requested the ingredient lists from the Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, arguing that the public needs to know what chemicals companies are putting underground.
 
     Natrona County District Judge Catherine Wilking has ruled that Wyoming's state oil and gas supervisor was correct to withhold the ingredient lists as protected trade secrets.
 
     Specially formulated lubricants are used in fracking, which involves pumping water, sand and fracking fluids underground to split open oil- and gas-bearing rocks.
 
     Attorneys for Wyoming and oilfield services company Halliburton argued that public disclosure could allow competing companies to reverse-engineer fracking fluids.

Fracking Suspected in Rash of Earthquakes in Unlikely Places

by Noel Brinkerhoff and David Wallechinsky
AllGov
December 14, 2011


Ohio is not exactly earthquake country, and yet the area near Youngstown has been struck nine times in eight months by seismic activity...

Seismologists found most of the quakes' epicenters coincided with the location of a 9,000-foot well near downtown Youngstown, into which went leftover liquids from fracking operations in Pennsylvania. "As the wastewater was injected into the well under pressure, the thinking went, some of it might have migrated into deeper rock formations, unclamping ancient faults and allowing the rock to slip," wrote Henry Fountain in The New York Times...

In Arkansas, state officials became so alarmed by a swarm of more than 700 earthquakes that in July they shut down one disposal well, while the operators of three others shut down voluntarily. Since then there has been a significant decrease in earthquakes.

Alarm has also been raised in Oklahoma, where a 5.6 earthquake, the state's largest in history, struck 30 miles east of Oklahoma City on November 5. Oklahoma, a major location for hydraulic fracturing, experienced between 2 and 6 earthquakes a year between 1972 and 2008. In 2010 there were 1,047...

I'm just saying I'm probably exposed to worse contamination mowing my lawn than I would be if I got some frac fluid on me.
