The Oklahoma Corporation Commission (OCC) has placed new restrictions on waste disposal wells injecting into the Arbuckle formation following a spate of earthquakes around Medford, OK, beginning last weekend. Nine wells and five operators are affected. The wells are being required to alter their operations based on their distance from the center of the recent earthquake activity. For details, visit the OCC website. The action is just the latest by the commission as it works to deal with numerous instances of seismic activity that have been blamed on drilling waste injection wells (see Shale Daily, Oct. 19).
Enable Gas Transmission LLC (EGT) is holding a binding open season through Dec. 3 for its Cana and STACK Expansion (CaSE).
