Oklahoma Magnitude 5.2

Post by SPARTAN 119 on Sun 6 Nov 2011 - 0:17

Greetings from Norman, Oklahoma, we just had a magnitude 5.2 earthquake a few minutes ago, apparently one of the larger ones in state history. Damage is minimal (by minimal, I mean a shattered vase). Here's the quake on the USGS: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/usb0006klz.php

Awinnell can fracking really upset the earths crust enough to cause an earthquake given the amount of energy involved. I don't know much about the process my background in is the biological sciences.

so an independent report hired by the gas company says,they are pumping high pressure fluid into shale so i guess it might either force the rock to crumble or perhaps lubricate a fault enough to trigger the quake



Cuadrilla commissioned the independent report to investigate links between the tremors and fracking work at its Preese Hall-1 well, between Blackpool and Preston. It concluded that it is "highly probable" that the fracking at Preese Hall-1 site triggered the seismic events but added the tremors were due to "an unusual combination of factors".

"This combination of geological factors was rare and would be unlikely to occur together again at future well sites", the report said.

Mark Miller, chief executive officer of Cuadrilla, said: "We unequivocally accept the findings of the independent report and we are pleased that there is no threat to people or property in the local area from our operations. We are ready to put in place the early detection system that has been proposed in the report so that we can provide additional confidence and security to the local community."

The Department of Energy and Climate Change said the report will be considered "very carefully" alongside the "highest standards of safety and environmental protection".

Environment groups added that the report's findings raised "very real concerns". Friends of the Earth's Tony Bosworth said: "An early seismic detection system won't be enough to make local people feel safe - there should be no more fracking in Britain until the health and environmental impacts are fully understood."

Thanks for the info I have a better picture of it now. So it looks like fracking disrupts an already delicate balance like placing a cup on the edge of the table.
