CHICAGO, ILLINOIS (French Tribune) - As per recent reports, it has been revealed that various positive news are coming in for fans today, and it has been said that as many as three items that are highlights of a rational world will be providing additional and highly effective guidance in terms of convincing some anti-fracking zealots which they have to find for the sake of protesting.

A number of recent incidents of groundwater being contaminated by natural gas were mainly a result of building wells, and the fracking process had nothing much to wager on it.

That’s in accordance with a probe carried out by the Environmental Defense Fund as well as Southwestern Energy.

The findings of the study, which were made available in the recent edition of the Wall Street Journal report, will prove a big shocker for anyone engaged in tooling shale gas wells. But still, they are mostly expected to get dismissed by a number of anti-frackers who are still mindful of the fact that cracks of impermeable rock around three miles under the surface may well efficiently offer a trail for small amounts of chemicals which are especially designed for adhering on to rock surface. Also, they later manage seeping up and invading water reservoirs which were just around hundreds of feet down the surface.

Along the same lines, some tough and fresh brine injection laws were recently announced by the Department of Natural Resources of the state, which were mainly inspired by the findings of the report based on the Youngstown well which, as per the report, were focused on “a number of coincidental circumstances”. For one, as claimed by an investigator, the well started its functions merely three months before the first quake.

The report added: “Geologists believe it is very difficult for all conditions to be met to induce seismic events. In fact, all the evidence indicates that properly located ... injection wells will not cause earthquakes”.
