6/28/2014 — 4.0M fracking earthquake near Gas plant in Oklahoma — Utah 4.2M near mining operation

June 28, 2014:

Another noteworthy 4.0M earthquake occurred in North Central Oklahoma.

This current event occurred (again) directly on the edge of a large injection well / fracking / oil well drilling site.  Also, rather worrisome to see this shaking occur very close to a large natural gas processing plant.

Above: 4.0M earthquake on June 28, 2014 occurred at a sizable fracking / injection well operation in North Central Oklahoma.

Last thing anyone needs is a large natural gas pipe to shake loose under all this heavy seismic activity (has been known to happen in the past in other active earthquake areas around the world like Japan, Russia, and Asia).

Pipelines which cross the area MUST be under stress at this point, after hundreds of earthquakes this year alone.  Peoples yards are moving, foundations on houses moving, interior walls of homes moving… which means we can pretty much expect the pipelines and drilled out shafts themselves to be moving as well.

Above: Past 7 days of earthquakes 2.5M+ (up to June 28th going into 29th 2014). The diagram showing edge of the craton is seen on the right. Clearly the Western to central portion of the North American Craton is in flux. Showing as multiple earthquakes along the “edge” of the plate.

In addition to the heavy movement in Oklahoma, a 4.2M earthquake struck upon the Western edge of the craton in Central Utah, near an active mine (which collapsed several years ago killing several miners).

Above: June 28, 2014 a noteworthy 4.2M earthquake occurred in central Utah near an active mining operation. Depth of the event is much deeper than the mine in operation.
