Companies to stop injection wells in Faulkner

Posted By on Fri, Mar 4, 2011 at 10:31 AM

You can go here to follow Fox 16 Twitter reports from the Arkansas Geology Commission, where the subject was to be an emergency order stopping injection wells in Faulkner County that might have some relationship to recent earthquakes in the region.

Fox 16 said Chesapeake and Clarita Operating had agreed before the meeting to stop using the wells, which dispose of waste from the fracking process of injecting fluids below ground to tap natural gas deposits in the Fayetteville shale. The commission quickly approved the application to cease operations on the two wells.

The companies dispute any connection between their wells and seismic activity.
