"2 Ark. injection wells may be closed amid quakes"
Edited... I just noticed that this was posted earlier. Well, this is a good time for me to mention the swarm in yellowstone. And the injection in its hydrothermal areas also. Along with all the swarms in CA that folks are living with. Is this how government does business? Money comes first? They knew all along....edit on 3-3-2011 by elouina because: Injection wells cosing was Posted already...
Current studies of The Geysers Geothermal Field seismicity have reached the conclusion that deep-well injection in the field produces mostly microseismic events between magnitude 0.5-3.0 on the Richter Scale (M). As can be seen in the figure, the seismicity between magnitude 3.0 and 4.6 (the largest event recorded in The Geysers field which was in 1973) is on the order of a few M4 events per year and on the order of 20 to 30 M3 events per year. Although the M4 events have been increasing, the number of M3 events have been relatively constant since the mid 1980s.

My radio woke me at 6.00am today with our local news. The second story in was about Fracking.
I live in the UK - England - Lancashire and it was news to me that 'Fracking' is also being done on my doorstep. Apparently the news reader said that the 'Fracking' on the Fylde coast was to be put on hold due to safety concerns.
I will try to find more information, but as yet I am struggling.
On a side note, this is an interesting short doccumentary on Fracking.... great for people new to the issue.
