Yet another noticeable earthquake in Oklahoma : location .. large fracking operation.
The depth of this earthquake is not the normal 3.0 miles deep we normally see associated with these large pumping operations — rather, we see it occurred at about NINE miles deep — indication that something is happening BELOW the fracking operation — and we can assume that something this deep indicates FURTHER movement to come.
Anything sitting ABOVE the movement — will itself be moving at some point nearterm (next few months to years).
Think of it this way.. Bayou Corne saltdome… sitting on TOP of some serious deeper movement — has caused the salt dome collapse . What lies beneath these operations is more important than the more shallow movement caused by fracking.
