The U.S. Geological Survey reports that the number of earthquakes greater than magnitude 3 in Oklahoma is increasing exponentially. There were 20 in 2009 and 427 through the first 10 ½ months of 2014. The Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS) has now documented a temporal connection between hydraulic fracturing and nearby felt earthquakes, although more research is needed to prove a causal relationship.

Like numerous other geologic formations, the allure of the Wilcox has waxed and waned owing to fluctuating commodity prices, among other issues. As hydrocarbon prices recovered and technology applications like hydraulic fracturing became commonplace, the Wilcox beckoned anew, attracting principally the mom-and-pop shops and the small to mid-size independents.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will soon announce the results of its review of the existing regulations and possibly announce tightening of ozone limits. The current limit—75 parts per billion (ppb) averaged over 8 hours—was set in March 2008. New limits are expected to be 60 to 70 ppb. Lower limits will certainly force many state and local governments to impose additional requirements to reduce emissions of the compounds that form ozone, oxides of nitrogen and volatile organic compounds.
