4/17/2015 — BACK TO BACK 3.9M earthquakes strike Oklahoma Fracking ops — CNBC pays a visit

Another fairly large series of back to back fracking earthquakes have occurred in Oklahoma.

Approximately 4am CDT April 17, 2015 two separate 3.9 magnitude (3.8M revised) earthquakes struck in central Oklahoma, within about 1 mile from the nearest fracking operation.

Nearing the level of a magnitude 4.0 is no small matter, as a 4.0M is = to 1,000 tons of TNT (1kiloton small nuclear weapon).

These most recent noteworthy earthquakes follow a flurry of activity which has occurred over the past few days – from California to Colorado, and from the Netherlands to Germany – all seeing some form of fracking earthquake activity.

Oklahoma being the location of THOUSANDS of earthquakes between 3.0M and 5.7M over the past 3 years — still carrying on with the basement block fracture which has occurred along ancient faults lines which have been forced to move via hydraulic pressure from above.


CNBC payed a visit to Oklahoma recently, seeing this video in my feed as recent news, clearly someone at CNBC is paying attention very closely.   They even mention Colorado, and Texas in this short news piece:




Information on this most current earthquake from the USGS here:


Magnitude / uncertainty 3.8 mb_lg± 0.0
Location / uncertainty 35.942°N 97.330°W± 1.2 km
Depth / uncertainty 5.8 km± 8.0
Origin Time 2015-04-17 08:37:11.360 UTC
Number of Stations
Number of Phases 79
Minimum Distance 19.59 km (0.18°)
Travel Time Residual 0.38 sec
Azimuthal Gap 29°
FE Region Oklahoma (499)


Magnitude / uncertainty 3.9 mb_lg± 0.0
Location / uncertainty 35.939°N 97.340°W± 1.6 km
Depth / uncertainty 6.5 km± 0.8
Origin Time 2015-04-17 09:08:06.060 UTC
Number of Stations
Number of Phases 66
Minimum Distance 18.81 km (0.17°)
Travel Time Residual 0.32 sec
Azimuthal Gap 34°
FE Region Oklahoma (499)

Overall, this is expected.

We were expecting to see movement resume in earnest along the edge of the craton AFTER the movement on the West coast this past week.

As of today (April 17) we have now seen that movement resume via two noteworthy back to back events directly below a fracking operation in Oklahoma.

Add in the other movement in Colorado , Tennessee , and New Brunswick (Quebec border) over the past week, and we start to see the picture of a moving craton edge.

Movement began almost 7 days ago when a series of 4.0M+ earthquakes struck off the West coast, which then displaced fracking / oil operations , and dormant volcanoes along the West coast.

The pressure from the NW then transferred to the East – Southeast along the craton edge, producing earthquakes in Colorado, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Quebec Canada.

Things aren’t finished yet.  We’ll now see a flurry of earthquakes in the 4.0M+ range, followed by a series of earthquakes (smaller events) up the East coast.  Then we will see activity back West near Yellowstone, followed ultimately by a reset of the pressure on the West coast, and we begin this ‘fun’ process again.

All should happen in the next 7 days or less from this point. (445am CDT April 17 2015).
