Of course, Barnett Shale Operators are quick to say there is no link between the drilling activity and the earthquakes we had last night.

I think the drilling may have contributed to the earthquake. They are raping the earth and there will be consequences. I’m surprised there haven’t been any before now.
i knew you’d be on top of this.
oil and gas drilling made this volcano flare http://tinyurl.com/5weceg.
“The eruption of the Lusi mud volcano in Indonesia was caused by drilling for oil and gas, a meeting of 74 leading geologists has concluded.
“Lusi erupted in May 2006 and continues to spew out boiling mud, displacing around 30,000 people in East Java.
“Drilling firm Lapindo Brantas denies a nearby well was the trigger, blaming an earthquake 280km (174 miles) away.
“Around 10,000 families who have lost their homes are awaiting compensation, which could run as high as $70m (£43m).
seems probable gas drilling could be playing a role here.
Oh wow! That is freaking amazing! Thanks for the link!
