In late September, McClendon and John Pinkerton, the CEO of Range Resources Corp., another company with Marcellus holdings, called on the industry to be more transparent about the chemicals it uses. Chesapeake, which keeps a log of its fracking chemicals on its Web site, has even endorsed New York state’s proposal to require drilling companies to register their products and disclose the compounds used.
Maybe I’m just not finding the “log” on their website but this, Hydraulic Fact Sheet, does not list the specific chemical compounds used.
I do appreciate that the journalist got this line in:
In 2004, the Environmental Protection Agency decided, based on a questionable study, that it need not regulate fracking, and in 2005, Congress formally exempted it from regulation under the Safe Drinking Water Act.
But most of this “article” sounds like CHK’s PR person wrote it.
