Agency Proposes New Fracking Rules For Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

Friday, Oklahoma's regulating agency, the Corporation Commission, proposed a new set of rules that would do the same thing.

If the new rules are adopted, all Oklahoma oil and gas producers will have to disclose the chemicals used during the fracking process in a public database called Frack Focus.

As part of our Oklahoma Impact Team, we plan to spend the next year investigating hydraulic fracturing in our state, and will bring you the results of our first investigation later this month.
