Fracking earthquakes have returned to Central Texas.
We’ve seen several earthquakes occur in the past, associated with different injection / extraction well operations across the state……. in the past, professionals DENIED the earthquake / fracking connection in Texas.
Now it is confirmed.
Now, in 2014, the professionals have acknowledged the connection between fracking and earthquakes.
Thus, we can confidently say, this man made earthquake is a sign of the greater pressure on the edge of the craton.
Here are the USGS earthquake states for both earthquakes, in Texas, and Oklahoma.
