4/16/2015 — Rare Earthquake in GERMANY occurred at Fracking / Oil operation

Today is turning out to be a VERY active day (globally) for Oil + Gas related earthquakes.

Starting over the past week, we’ve seen multiple earthquakes occur around Los Angeles, California at their fracking operations, followed by rare earthquake activity in Northwest Colorado at THEIR fracking / oil operations.

We now see (April 16, 2015) another rare event, measuring as a magnitude 3.3 earthquake in West Germany.

This 3.3M occurred very close to a oil / fracking operation.  The operation named on google earth is:

Bohrturm UGS, Teutschenthal (SK)

Rig von UGS Mittenwalde auf Speicherbohrung bei Teutschenthal

Over the past 3 days, we have also had news that the Dutch government is now limiting fracking operations due to the threat of increased earthquake activity this past week.

While the Europeans are taking this earthquake problem very seriously, here in the United States, our professionals are still somewhat in denial that fracking even causes earthquakes below their operations.

Here is a screenshot of one of the wells being drilled in Germany near this earthquake location:
