University of Alberta study suggests fracking is rarely cause of increased seismic activity

from Energetic City

A new study from the University of Alberta is suggesting that fracking and frackwater disposal both have limited impacts on seismic events. Geophysicist Mirko Van der Baan and his team spent the past two years examining earthquake rates over the past 30 to 50 years in North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, West Virginia, Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan. According to the study, scientists found no province- or state-wide correlation between increased hydrocarbon production and seismicity. more
