Federal Government is Longtime Supporter of Fracking
Nick Cunningham, DC Bureau
Friday August 23 marked the end of the public comment period for the Department of Interior’s draft “fracking rule” (see PDF) on public lands. The rule, originally proposed by Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in May 2013, has three main components: it would require drillers to disclose the chemicals used in fracking on public lands; it would setup standards for well integrity to safeguard against groundwater contamination; and it would require drillers to have a plan in place to deal with flow back.
