Wyoming Water Tests in Line With EPA Finding on Fracking...

Oct 12, 2012 Posted by

[Translate] Bloomberg By Mark Drajem – Oct 11, 2012 2:45 PM PT Tests of drinking water near a natural-gas drilling site in Wyoming back up findings that established the first link by the federal government between hydraulic fracturing and tainted water, the Environmental Protection Agency said. The EPA yesterday issued its follow-up analyses of two test wells it drilled in Pavillion and of five residents’ water wells, saying the pollutants it found were “consistent” with the results last year used to establish that connection to hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. Water quality in Pavillion, Wyoming, has attracted national attention since the EPA’s draft report in December showed that fracking may have contaminated homeowners’ water. “If it’s possible here, then it’s possible elsewhere as well, and that’s why the gas industry and some state governments are...

[Translate] 21 Sep 2012 4:42 PM By Philip Bump “I am here to drill up your ocean.” (Photo by Fabio DiLupo.)Embarrassing clown show Shell Oil is floating around the Arctic Ocean off the coast of Alaska, probably in poorly patched inner tubes while wearing those beer-can-straw hats. If you don’t remember the full history of the company’s sheer ineptitude in the area, it’s here. It is perfectly fair to assume that it hired a bunch of interns, bought three rowboats and an augur, and gave Arctic drilling a shot.Anyway, yesterday the company was granted yet another permit to poke around on the floor of the ocean near Alaska. Like a kid who’s just coming off being grounded, it’s on a short leash — only allowed to drill into shallow areas and to work on...
