Two multi-state organizations, with the help of oil and gas companies, are preparing to launch a website Monday (April 11) that will provide the public with a comprehensive list of chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing. The website, fracfocus.org, is being developed by the Ground Water Protection Council (GWPC) and the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission. “This is pretty unique,” GWPC spokesman Mike Nickolaus told NGI. “Some of the oil and gas companies have done some of this on their own in the past, and the service companies have something too, but it’s not at all like this.
