It could very well be drilling related. Look at the depth:
Injected steam & CO2, and gas fracing could cause this. 5 km is within the zone of drilling activity.
Now, if it was like 20-30 km deep, then I would doubt drilling or recovery activities are a cause.

I think it's just all those rowdy fans at the OSU games. I can't imagine any of those nice people at the gas company causing that and not saying anything. I trust them completely. They've hardly ever lied to me in the past.
I've learned to not drink anything while reading your comments. =)

You did my research for me! 🙂 I love pointing things like this out to people and shocking them. This is just more to add to the list of problems O&G cause. How can so many people stay so blissfully unaware!?
