If you are going to invoke the almighty Galactica please follow through... I clicked on this blog and got a severe case of 'galacticus interuptus'. Not one mention of Boomer, Adama, or the Pegasus. Don't do this to me again...
So say we all.
That's probably where this "article" was inspired, like while she was in line buying food & junk.
Are they using that tecnique in Dewitt County?
The documentary Gasland does a much better job of explaining Frac'ing.
Vanity Fair reported? That's like getting news from the mag racks in the grocery store check out lanes - good grief!
State oil and gas regulatory programs place great emphasis on protecting groundwater. Current well construction requirements consist of installing multiple layers of protective steel casing surrounded by cement. These elements are specifically designed and installed to protect freshwater aquifers.
The measures required by state regulatory agencies in the exploration and production of deep shale gas formations have been very effective in protecting drinking water aquifers from contamination attributable to hydraulic fracturing, or fracing. Based on reviews of state oil and gas agencies, there is not a documented case of drinking water contamination related to the fracing of a deep shale gas well.
Furthermore, the Ground Water Protection Council (GWPC) issued a report in April of 2009 stating that the potential for fracing deep shale gas wells to impact groundwater is extremely remote, as low as one in 200 million.
