Transparency Ordered in Public Land Fracturing

August 6, 2012

The Obama Administration has adopted New York State’s approach to full disclosure
of chemicals being used in hydraulic fracturing. The proposal will allow companies to file disclosure reports after drilling operations are completed rather than before as required in New York State. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has been quoted as saying “that the public will now be fully aware of the chemicals that are being injected into the underground”. The new regulation will not affect drilling on private land.
