Fort Worth Business Press;8/24/2009, Vol. 24 Issue 31, p57
The article discusses how further additional water recycling efforts may follow the decision of Chesapeake Energy Corp. to close two salt water disposal wells in North Texas. The closure is a precautionary measure taken by Chesapeake in line with the possible link between the minor earthquakes in North Texas with waste water disposal wells connected to natural gas production in the area. Several water recycling methods are being explored by Barnett Shale operators to reduce the environmental impact of oil drilling and reduce drilling costs.
