Industry will say fracking doesn’t cause earthquakes but that’s bull. See the FAQ section for more information on drilling induced earthquakes and note the Schlumberger study: Seismicity in the Oil Field.
I’m in Port Aransas and will drive home tomorrow through the Eagle Ford Shale Hell on earth.
Update: 2 Quakes tonight. One was 3.4M and one 3.1M
From my FAQ section on Earthquakes.
Does natural gas drilling cause earthquakes?
- Drilling can and has caused earthquakes. It’s just common sense.
- Fracking and Quaking: They’re Linked. And scientists, the military, and frackers themselves have known it for years.
- An industry study admits that drilling can cause earthquakes. Seismicity in the Oil Field.
- U.S. Government Confirms Link Between Earthquakes and Hydraulic Fracturing
- UK firm says shale fracking caused earthquakes
