It is by way of it's (DOGGR) use of definitions that neither match what is effectively legal in terms of law nor the industry standards of related linguistics and terminology to it's activities, that the public is left commenting on the wrong regulations.

This is the best industry animation I have seen, and shows how a well is prepared and how the hydraulic fracturing process works.

But there is truly something amiss. The way fracking is taking place, there are questions being asked about the process and its implications, published on Nov 21, 2012

As much as 85% of fracking fluids may remain underground. Toxic, used fracturing fluids that return to the surface are often referred to as flowback, and these wastes are typically stored in open pits or tanks at the well site prior to disposal.

Slick Water Fracking Moratorium In California Now!
A critique of the “Disgusting Draft” Regulations for Hydraulic Fracking in California, reveals (DOGGR) the Division's complete lack of regard for Administrative Procedure and interagency cooperation under California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 22 Social Security. It also suggests that DOGGR has falsely presented the nature of the need for “new Regulations” and the application of said regulations to the Public and the State of California.

It is by way of it's (DOGGR) use of definitions that neither match what is effectively legal in terms of law nor the industry standards of related linguistics and terminology to it's activities, that the public is left commenting on the wrong regulations.

Can the Oil & Gas industry defend any historical use in California of the new method of shale gas extraction which is associated with complaints and lawsuits over health and environmental problems and goes by the industrial strength name of (not fracking, not hydraulic fracking) but:

High-Volume High Pressure Slick Water Horizontal Hydraulic Fracturing?

That is the question Catherine Reheis-Boyd.
