ABSTRACT
The article deals with the possible role of the natural gas production in North Texas in a series of earthquakes within the area. Based on data from the U.S. Geological Survey, the earthquakes started on June 8, 2009 with an episode that recorded a magnitude of 2.6. According to the book "Texas Earthquakes," earthquakes in some areas in the state may be prompted by the pumping of fluids at oil and gas fields, as well as injection of fluids for the disposal of chemical wastes.
