Fracking rules to be amended for coal beds

The Alabama Oil and Gas Board (O&G Board) recently proposed to amend rules concerning Hydraulic Fracturing (fracking) of Coal Beds.

As an EHS professional, it’s hard to tell if you are being paid competitively, and as an employer, it’s hard to tell if you are offering salaries that are competitive and efficient. For a Limited Time we’re offering a FREE copy of the 2016 EHS Salary Guide! Download Now

The amendments would require public disclosure of well stimulation fluids used in hydraulic fracturing. The amendments would also affect fees.

Currently, a proposal to fracture a coal group must be accompanied by a check or bank draft in the amount of $175 for each proposal. The amendments would cap fees for hydraulic fracturing operations in a single well at $525 regardless of how many coal groups are hydraulically fractured.

In order to provide adequate disclosure of well stimulation fluids used in a hydraulic fracturing operation, the amendments would require operations to provide:

  • A description of the fracture fluid identified by additive, e.g., acid, proppant, surfactant; and
  • The name of the chemical compound and the Chemical Abstracts Service Registry number, as published by the Chemical Abstracts Service, a division of the American Chemical Society, for each constituent of the additive used.

In addition, within 30 days after the fracturing of a well, the operator would be required to post the information to the FracFocus website (http://fracfocus.org ).
