Oklahoma Earthquakes And The Rise In Fracking


Oklahoma Earthquakes And The Rise In Fracking18-12-2017 23:06

The earth is shaking in Oklahoma, and it's far from normal –– a recent study by Cornell University and the U.S. Geological Survey has linked the state's exponential spike in earthquakes with a surge in hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. Imran Garda talks to worried Oklahomans and gets a behind-the-scenes look at how the chemical-laced water required to frack is disposed of.

And what's that from 6 mins?
Surprise surprise - unregulated dumping of waste water into open pits with no membrane.

That 2014 video is kind of out of date now.

That continued injection of fracking (or any kind of) wastewater onto a disposal well long enough can and sometimes does cause earthquakes is established. I think that even in Oklahoma that is now recognized and that they now regulate at least a little.

The dumping of wastewater into open ponds? Nothing to do with earthquakes, but it might well ruin the land for agricultural purposes, depending on what's in the wastewater.

Out current head of the US EPA was Oklahoma Attorney General, I think, when the earthquake injection went on. Didn't see a need to regulate.

Just background, but it's all news here.
Did you know the Stefan-Boltzman law was deduced in 1879? Fascinating.
Half the twats in this place must have buckles on their shoes.

Oklahoma's fracking-induced earthquakes are not going to stop - Aug 2017

Last week, Oklahoma found itself in the news again for a swarm of earthquakes that struck the state Tuesday through Thursday. The largest one, at 4.2 on the Richter scale, was large enough to rattle windows and nerves across Edmond, a large suburb of Oklahoma City.

This wasn't supposed to happen anymore....

Do you live in Oklahoma and have you felt any earthquakes there?

I should also add that any earthquakes would NOT be due to fracking but from pumping oil out of the ground for 150 years leaving open caverns that can collapse. The sort of earthquakes that occur there supports such a supposition.

Fracking would be more likely to reduce earthquakes by filling in these drained wells and filling the caverns.

They just aren't caverns. Capped wells refill with oil over time.

Take your tiresome crap elsewhere. They do not "refill" which is WHY they use fracking you moron.

They DO refill. They also use fracking. We have more oil available now. There's plenty of it.

Is there ANYTHING you really know about? Contrary to your wild eyed opinions, oil does not generate itself out of water and dirt.

Oil well production usually goes down about 3% per year over the life of production. They would close some wells down and reopen them before they had fracking technology. Fracking doesn't make oil, it simply makes it more available.

They have pumped several tens of cubic miles of oil out of the Oklahoma oil production areas since the turn of the 20th century. Any ass would expect a collapse of these emptied caverns. These "earthquakes" are severely localized and circular in area. They are little more than a minor shaking and it is localized directly around the wells.

If you don't understand engineering or science please keep your stupid statements to yourself and tell yourself you're brilliant like litebrain. Save for your position on AGW you are two peas in a pod.

Never said it did. The wells DO refill.

During pumping, that is the expected drop, however, some fields produce far more than expected.

Nope. Wells pumped 'dry' would refill after capping. They produce normally.

You are so stupid you don't even know what this string is about. Your total knowledge of geology can be summed up with the number zero.

You wouldn't even think of not acting like a jackass.

Now I fully expect you to say that "zero" is not a number.
