After putting out my previous post on the fracking earthquakes in Oklahoma, a 4.3M event struck the area in question (yet again).
Upon review of the area, multiple frack wells reside near the earthquake epicenter, however, instead of finding a frack well near the EXACT epicenter, a leaking oil pipeline appears to be nearby.
Surely not water in this pipeline, a compressing station is a few hundred feet West of this pipeline substation, leaking crude oil most likely.
Here is a closeup of the pipeline compressor station:
