In early June the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released their report entitled “Assessment of the Potential Impacts of Hydraulic Fracturing for Oil and Gas on Drinking Water Resources.” The report did not find evidence of widespread contamination of water supplies as a result of fracking. However it detailed instances of contamination and the many, many opportunities for disaster. Read the full report here: http://wp.cedha.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/HF_ERD_JUN2015.pdf

We drilled our vertical wells with the expectation that they would be profitable at $84/bbl and with wells that cost $6.5M-$7M,” the […]

By MICHAEL WINES APRIL 21, 2015 Abandoning years of official skepticism, Oklahoma’s government on Tuesday embraced a scientific consensus that earthquakes rocking the state are largely caused by the underground disposal of billions of barrels of wastewater from oil and gas wells. The state’s energy and environment cabinet introduced a website detailing the evidence behind that conclusion Tuesday, including links to expert studies of Oklahoma’s quakes. The site includes an […]
