5/08/2015 — Texas Railroad Commission orders tests on “frack” wells after 4.0M earthquake #winning

After a magnitude 4.0 earthquake strikes the South Dallas / Venus, TX fracking operations, the Texas Railroad Commission now sees the light on fracking earthquakes!

The commission has now ordered the operators of the wells nearby the 4.0 magnitude earthquake to undergo inspections in light of this larger seismic event.

Now I know for certain the fracking earthquake message is being heard by the people who need to hear it most.  #winning

Thanks to all the viewers, and readers who are sharing the information – we are seeing results from your efforts!

(thanks to James Dalek Smith for sharing the news on this)

The operators are:

  • Bosque Disposal Systems, LLC
  • EOG Resources, Inc.
  • MetroSaltwater Disposal, Inc.
  • Pinnergy, Ltd.

The TRC (Texas Railroad Commission) is charged with the approval, and permitting of all oil / gas wells in the state of Texas.

Quote the Associated Press news release on this TRC order:

http://www.startribune.com/texas-orders-disposal-well-testing-near-4-0-magnitude-quake/303143661/

“AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Texas Railroad Commission is requiring the operators of five disposal wells near a sharp earthquake to perform some tests.

 

In a statement Friday, the commission says Bosque (BAHS’-kee) Disposal Systems LLC, EOG Resources Inc., MetroSaltwater Disposal Inc. and Pinnergy Ltd have agreed to shut down the wells temporarily until results are in on the tests, which will be made within days. The testing will help determine the effect of wastewater injection into subsurface rock formations in the area where a 4.0 magnitude earthquake was centered Thursday about 30 miles southwest of Dallas

The quake was the sharpest ever detected in North Texas. It injured no one but caused minor damage to two mobile home foundations.”

________

Up until recently, literally up until this noteworthy 4.0M earthquake, the commission had been in full denial on the relation between earthquakes , and “fracking” / wastewater injection.  We had seen a swarm of earthquakes build to this larger event, which the TRC was warned would happen.

Being the ardent researcher I am, unfortunately I had to call them out publicly, notify my Texas viewers to put pressure on their local officials, and make a public mockery of their denials.

The back and forth began almost 4 months ago:

5/08/2015 — ELEVEN large volcanic eruptions in 1 days time! South Japan at Sakurajima Volcano

May 8, 2015

11 separate large blasts occurred at Sakurajima Volcano on mainland South Japan in just one days time.

11 eruptions japan 1 day may 8 2015

____

I have assembled a phenomenal 30 minute montage video of the eruptions , some of which last fairly long.  These were compiled from throughout the day today (May 8, 2015).

7 large daytime eruptions, and 4 large eruptions after dark. Then the feed was CUT by the Japanese webcam host!

This is like 2011 all over again, multiple large eruptions at Sakurajima means pressure is building in the region. Sakurajima is like a pressure gauge on the Pacific plate, when we see Sakurajima show major activity, we can expect large earthquake activity to follow in nearby adjacent areas just to the North and just to the South of this location in Japan.

These 11 eruptions were recorded via video capture from the streaming webcams provided by the University of Tokyo, and the JSA.

You can watch (record) your own videos of this volcano using the webcams on http://www.volcanodiscovery.com

_______

This new volcanic activity comes on the heels of multiple large earthquakes in the West Pacific, the announcement that a dormant volcano near Tokyo (silent for 800 years) is coming to life, and with a new Eruption in the Philippines.

All this happened after deep movement in the Asthenosphere below the West Pacific.

Studies (and tests in the field) have been done which prove Asthenosphere movement (deep below the plate) causes shallow movement upon the plate above.

When the deep movement occurs, it displaces a larger region above the epicenter, the magma chambers located between the Asthenosphere, and the crust are also displaced, which then produces earthquake + volcano activity.

See more on the deep asthenosphere findings here:

On top of all the other dormant volcanic activity happening globally, such as ancient volcanoes waking up in Japan after 800 years of silence, and unexpected eruptions in Chile — we now are seeing movement begin around MULTIPLE dormant volcanoes along the West coast of the United States.

This comes on top of the news of a fresh underwater eruption occurring off the West coast of Oregon.

Most recently, now we see earthquake movement directly at Mono Lake Supervolcano, which is located in Central Eastern California, along the Nevada border.

________

If this movement at Mono Lake, CA was on its own, then we might say it was just “chance” or “coincidence”….. or maybe we might incorrectly think it was just “normal” small seismic activity which one might see at a time of global seismic unrest elsewhere.

But if you knew about the OTHER dormant volcanoes which showed movement this past week, then you might reconsider your definition of “normal”, and thus reconsider what we might be observing take place along the West Coast.

9 out of the 10 past most recent earthquakes on the West coast were DIRECTLY at volcanic locations.

Thanks for posting What the hell is next Pardon my french

 

 my reply:

+UPGardenrMore larger earthquakes now the the area has experienced what I call a “super-fracture“.
“The super fracture will cause casements in OTHER wells to fracture, along with wastewater disposal wells under pressure from the fractured casements as well as ground pressure coming from the NW due to the craton movement we’re seeing elsewhere. 

Now that this popped, expect a spreading out from this point to adjacent areas.

Just like in Oklahoma, began with small movement which was DENIED to be linked to the injection extraction process — those built into 3.0M events.. which then built to a 4.0M event.. which THEN built to a 5.0M+ event.. and then the whole area blew out with (now) TENS of thousands of earthquakes.

Once the area “super fractures” then the area really starts moving within a few months or less.

Only a state line drawn on a map between Texas and Oklahoma.  Geologically speaking we can now expect the other operations to move heavily, and then we’ll see the “reactivation” of the ancient faults below Texas. This should also lead to earthquakes further Southeast and Southwest of this Texas Location… meaning Louisiana and Arkansas are now back in the mix.. and New Mexico / Colorado will also see more noteworthy movement.

Texas is moving as a result of the craton pressure releasing at the weak points (fracking operations + oil wells) … also releasing at dormant volcanoes on the West coast.

The pressure on the craton is causing the breaking of the casements which contain the hydraulic fluids under pressure. The water in the wells escapes into surrounding rock, and is causing unintended large earthquakes. These unintended earthquakes then cause fracturing in the casements of the OTHER NEARBY wells, and this causes additional earthquakes, which then fracture ADDITIONAL casements on other operations. This begins the unintended “super fracture” process.

Once the “super fracture” process starts, like a breaking piece of glass, it cannot be contained once it gets beyond a small fracture.

This leads to a growing cycle of earthquakes , where one earthquake causes another earthquake in another location adjacent to it. For instance, we will see earthquakes bounce between the Southern Colorado fracking operations, and the Oklahoma Fracking operations 500 miles east! Or , we will see the Oklahoma operation experience a large event, which then causes another event in South Kansas at one of their fracking operations.

We have seen 5.0M activity in Oklahoma cause 5.0M activity in Southern Colorado.. We have seen 4.0M activity in Oklahoma cause other 4.0M activity in Oklahoma…all these aforementioned earthquakes which bounce around happen within HOURS or DAYS of each other.

Now that Texas experienced its “super fracture” in Venus, TX. Within the next few weeks we will be seeing new swarms of earthquakes develop nearby this area.  Texas will be on the earthquake map for a while to come thanks to this newest MAN MADE EARTHQUAKE.

If these operations were not here, there would not be a “weak point” for this Northwest craton pressure to release at. The pressure would have traveled through Texas bedrock and crust — moving further East towards Arkansas and Tennessee.

There would normally be a buildup of pressure along the New Madrid and Smoky Mountains — the mountains “growth” would normally occur. Instead, Texas and Oklahoma are now taking the release that would have built along the New Madrid, and the Eastern Craton mountain chains (which extend up to New England).

I suppose we should thank the people of Texas for taking the hit for us up here on the New Madrid.

Texas officials have been DENYING the fracking is causing earthquakes in their region.

Over the past few months, multiple 2.0M – 3.0M+ earthquakes have struck around the Dallas Texas area.  The Texas Railroad Commission, those charged with the approval of gas wells for the State of Texas, literally denied a fracking earthquake connection.

As we warned over the past few months, these earthquakes would spread across the area, and grow in magnitude.
