Study suggests bedrock stress a factor in fracking-caused earthquakes October 29, 2018 - 10:15am A paper published Monday in Geophysical Research Letters suggests the likelihood of an artificial earthquake is heavily influenced by how stable the ground was before the energy industry showed up.
British Columbia, Canada has had: (M1.5 or greater) 4 earthquakes in the past 24 hours 27 earthquakes in the past 7 days; 71 earthquakes in the past 30 days
3/29/2016 · A new report, set to be published in the journal of the Seismological Society of America, examines an area straddling the B.C.-Alberta border and finds that between 90 …
4.6 quake in August triggered by fracking largest on record, OGC finds by Jonny Wakefield, December 15, 2015, Alaska Highway News. Fluid injection during hydraulic fracturing caused a 4.6 earthquake north of Fort St. John this summer, the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission (OGC) has found.
According to the Commission, a magnitude 4.5 earthquake is often felt on the surface but rarely causes damage, and less than 0.2% of hydraulic fracturing operations cause felt events. There were no reports of damage or injuries from last week's events, though hundreds of felt reports were submitted to Earthquakes Canada.
Hydraulic fracturing triggered a series of small earthquakes in 2013 on a previously unmapped fault in Harrison County, Ohio, according to a study published in the journal Seismological Research... Getting more fracking obvious: Study shows hydraulic fracturing linked to earthquakes in Ohio -- Earth Changes …
While any direct connection between fracking and earthquakes is still under debate, the Oklahoma Corporation Commission has conceded that "Researchers largely agree that wastewater injection into the Arbuckle formation poses the largest potential risk for earthquakes in Oklahoma," according to their September Earthquake Response Summary.
Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, involves the injection of high-pressure fluid into wells in order to crack rock and release natural gas. This process can trigger seismic events but most are not felt above ground. In August of 2015 the BC Oil and Gas Commission confirmed that a 2014 4.4 magnitude earthquake in North East BC was in fact the direct result of hydraulic fracturing activity in ...
A group of Canadian researchers have published new research that points to hydraulic fracturing of oil and gas wells, not wastewater disposal, as the cause of earthquakes in Western Canada. Hydraulic fracturing involves drilling deep into the ground and injecting high-pressured fluids. The process creates fractures in rocks, which aids in releasing oil or natural […]
12/1/2018 · He said the survey established seismic stations in the region in 2013 and the stations automatically detected the quakes Thursday evening. It contacted the oil and gas commission, which investigated to see if there is a specific fracking operation nearby, he said. READ MORE: 4.5 magnitude earthquake strikes near Fort St. John
Fracking is not really responsible for the OK earthquake problem - salt water injection is the actual culprit. Whenever oil and gas is produced from a reservoir, there is always some amount of water that naturally comes with it from the underground formation.
Earthquake struck around 3:30 p.m. PT at a depth of 10 kilometres, 205 kilometres west of Port Hardy. A 5.2-magnitude earthquake struck off the west coast of Vancouver Island, near Port Hardy, Friday around 3:38 p.m. PT. Earthquake Canada says the earthquake was not felt, and no tsunami was expected. The shaker was centred 205 […]

21.5 Western Canada during the Cenozoic Two additional relatively small terranes collided with North America early in the Cenozoic. At around 55 Ma, metamorphosed sedimentary and volcanic rocks of the Pacific Rim Terrane were forced a few tens of kilometres …
By Daybreak Kamloops, CBC News, Jan 18, 2016. Several First Nations protesters involved in the 1995 Gustafsen Lake standoff are calling for a national inquiry into the level of force used by the RCMP during the 31-day confrontation.
But unlike the earlier earthquake, this one does not appear to be linked to fracking activity in the region. Earthquakes Canada reports that a 4.3 magnitude earthquake hit at about 4 a.m. Sunday, about 32 kilometres northwest of Rocky Mountain House. The quake was at a depth of 10 km and no damages have been reported.
A magnitude 4.7 earthquake was detected off the west coast of Vancouver Island this morning. According to the United States Geological Survey, the tremor hit at 10:38 a.m. PST and had an epicentre 176 kilometres southwest of Port Hardy – near the border of the Explorer and Juan de Fuca plates.

4/5/2019 · – “After a few minutes, I realized it was an earthquake,” Langer said. – There was a small earthquake on Nov. 2 in Peace River, just northeast of Peace River. The recently published study involving Alberta researcher Jeff Gu indicates fracking may trigger earthquakes in the province.
A road train carrying forty-four 1.2 ton bags of ammonium nitrate manufactured for explosives use was involved in a single vehicle accident. The truck, traveling at night in a remote area, left the road ending-up in a dry creek bed adjacent to a road bridge and in close proximity to a rail bridge. The vehicle was on fire and the driver was injured.
