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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
