Part of what you are saying is right. There can't be a universal process with thousands of companies involved. They all try to attempt some of the
same standards, but as with any company, some try to cut corners to save money.
The casing was 100% the fault with the deepwater venture....I am in the industry and have the inside information on it from which I am not allowed to
share other than my opinion's on it. I am not a paid social media person defending them or anything like that, I have just done very intensive
research on the topic, the casing was argued about for a long time before BP pushed their "cheaper" agenda on Halliburton and the other companies
If BP would have listened to what the Halliburton high ups were talking about, this would never have happened....NEVER!! Casing is the most important
part of any frac job, if your cement casing is done correct, then nothing can leak out and no problems will come about because of it. Unfortunately
every company that fracs does not have the same policies to a casing job, hence some issues here and there.
There have been companies fracking for coming up on 100 years, believe me they are very good at what they do. There has been so much money spent on
research and what is needed to successfully get resources out of the ground this way and there are very few instances where mistakes are made now a
Like I said if the deep water job was done right, most people still wouldn't even know what fracking is.....Any terrible thing that happens like that
will open people's eyes to what can happen worst case scenario.
People can make claims against it all they want and blame fracking for whatever they want, that does not make it true, you know this. They do test
after test on water supplies, fracking fluid, water samples on locations, etc to be 100% sure there has been no damage done for local people and water
If all you hear from people is negativity with no actual evidence, just a bunch of he said she said, that is what you will believe, unfortunately.....
