Here’s a video I made last year of a frack job in Wise County.
We need FULL DISCLOSURE of what chemicals are used in hydraulic fracturing.
Yesterday, Williams Petroleum spilled frack fluid in Flower Mound.

Yes, the recipe for fracking fluid is at the heart of this dispute-and at the heart of the danger that has victimized communities. If companies reveal the formula…liability! So, we require laws and enforcement, which leads to "crippling the industry." Will we protect the industry or the public?
OK please someone enlighten me if fracturing fluid only contains water and sand why the special red and orange slanted tankers. These tankers come on site at the beginning of fracturing and leave at the end of fracturing. I have seen drilling operations pull the water for fracturing from tanks and public water sources so what is in the special tankers?
We complained to the fire marshal Charles Meyers in Denton Tx during the fracturing process at Razyor Ranch and when Mr. Meyers came to the site he told me and one other person "it is only sand and water" stop worrying.
Don't the drilling companies have to disclose an MDS to county officials in case of a spill? I think it is an MDS Mr. Meyers was not quite sure what I meant so I maybe wrong about abbreviation for disclosure information. In any case he knew nothing about a disclosure of any chemical information from Range Resources.
How would emergency responders even know how to address a spill if they do not know what they contain?
It may have sand and water in it—BUT, there is much, much more to it. It can contain all kinds of crap. Can vary from fracker to fracker and from well to well. A lot depends upon special needs. And a lot of the stuff serves a special purpose; but, it is only waste from other chemical and industrial processes! SO, we MUST have the recipe–gotta have that recipe each and every time. Let us know what is in the stuff!
Every truck driver is required to carry a manifest,also must carry a material safety data sheet(MSDS) required by Federal DOT. Also if its hazardous must have placard on tank.
This truck driver info is iteresting, but not very revealing. We need more than that!
Oil & Gas Industry are exempt from the hazardous info. label on the trucks. Been through this.
7:36 am I'DONT THINK SO I GOT A TICKET FROM DPS FOR NOT HAVING IT.
