Fracking Earthquakes Shake Canada by Susan Phillips, September 7, 2012, NPR State Impact Pennsylvania
More reports of drilling related earth­quakes have sur­faced, this time from our north­ern neigh­bor Canada. In past reports, deep injec­tion wells, used to dis­pose of frack­ing waste water were the cause. But this time, it’s the frack­ing itself. Energy Wire reports on a study that links quakes in British Colum­bia to frack­ing oper­a­tions near faults in the Horn River Basin. [Emphasis added]
