Will Fracking Derail Natural Gas Vehicles?

by Kenneth E. DuBose on March 4, 2011

Arkansas earthquakes are thought to be linked to natural gas production.  Tests are ongoing to determine the cause of increased geological activity in Arkansas

“Oklahoma City-based Chesapeake Energy and Clarita Operating of Little Rock told the Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission on Friday that they’ve stopped operation of the wells near Greenbrier and Guy pending the panel’s next regular meeting on March 29.

“The commission says there is likely a link between the wells and the earthquakes. There have been more than 800 quakes in the area in the past six months and a magnitude 4.7 quake – the strongest in Arkansas in 35 years – hit there Sunday.”
