Expert on Fracking and Drilling-Induced Seismicity to Speak in Salt Lake City


The hot topics of fracking and drilling-induced seismicity will be the focus of a keynote speech by Distinguished Lecturer Donald Clarke. Gas field fracking is the fracturing of deeply buried rocks under extremely high pressures to enhance oil and gas flow toward wells. Drilling-induced seismicity is the triggering of earthquakes through oil and gas production activities.
