Who knew that Oklahoma is more progressive in social issues and more protective of the public regarding fracking related issues than Texas? They are lightyears ahead of us.
The new Oklahoma rule is one of the recommendations I made in my presentation at the people’s frackquake meeting in Azle Monday night.
The proposed rule would require daily recording of injection volumes and pressures for disposal wells in the Arbuckle formation in central Oklahoma. Disposal well operators would be required to keep the daily monitoring data for three years.
The proposed rule will be discussed two technical conferences before it goes before the three-member commission.
In Texas today, while I was talking with an Azle resident on the phone, there was another earthquake. It was a small one.
