MooPig's Tech Coroner :: "Fracking in the Brazos Valley?"

Today's Question from Left Field: Are They Fracking in the Brazos Valley, Texas?

Insurance Company Won't Cover Fracking Process | Seneca Daily News: "Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. has become the first major insurance company to say it won’t cover damage related to a gas drilling process that blasts chemical-laden water deep into the ground.

The Columbus, Ohio-based company’s personal and commercial policies “were not designed to cover” risk from the drilling process, called hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, Nationwide spokeswoman Nancy Smeltzer said Thursday.

The process injects chemically treated water into wells to fracture shale thousands of feet underground and release trapped gas or oil. There are rich shale deposits in parts of Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, West Virginia and elsewhere."

Oil business balks at a term it created: ‘fracking’
The same energy industry which created the term “fracking” is now criticizing its use by others.
Energy giants feel the word has a negative sound to it and is being used by environmentalists and others to make them look worse. They now prefer the term from which fracking was derived: “hydraulic fracturing.”
Groat, a former Director of the U.S. Geological Survey and professor at the Jackson School of Geosciences at the University of Texas at Austin, also sits on the board of Plains Exploration and Production Company, a Houston-based company that conducts drilling and fracking in Texas and other parts of the country. According to the new report (and a review of the company’s financial reports by Bloomberg) Groat received more than $400,000 from the drilling company last year alone, more than double his salary at the University. And one of the shales examined in Groat’s fracking study is currently being drilled by the company, the report says.
Since 2007, Groat has received over $1.5 million in cash and stock awards from the company, and he currently holds over $1.6 million in company stock, according to the PAI report.

Tell the people around wells near Dallas or people whose home is over the Eagle Ford shale. Fracking cannot be separated from the deep well disposal of used fracking fluids containing unknown dangerous compounds. The deep well disposal of these compounds have absolutely been shown to cause earthquakes.

So dispense with the double-speak. Fracking causes earthquakes.

Whether these earthquakes cause damage or injury is luck. Nevertheless, corporations that create waste liquids that are disposed of by deep well injection should be financially responsible for the damage the induced earthquakes cause, and damage to the ground water that results from their activities..
Congress and the Department of Energy requested the 240-page report.
Natural gas and oil companies are expected to begin revealing which chemicals they employ in the drilling process hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, in compliance with a new rule of the Texas Railroad Commission.
The companies also must reveal the amounts of water they use in the drilling process, which is widespread in such areas as South Texas’ Eagle Ford Shale play and North Dakota’s Bakken oil field.

The companies still can keep a lid on any “trade secret” formulas for fracking fluids.
Some environmentalists believe fracking compromises an area’s groundwater supply by polluting it with chemicals. Such chemicals are mixed with sand in millions of gallons of water injected into shale formations at high pressure to release trapped oil or gas.
