"The Wall Street Journal has finally admitted that shale oil wells are not producing as much as the companies operating them touted they would produce... But what they missed is just how much farther off many of these reserves are than even the discounted reserves that they've reported. ...I've been trying for a decade to get the number that I independently develop to get anywhere close to the published numbers. In most cases, I can only get near 60% or 70% of them. So, the gap, I think is much more substantial." https://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/114710/art-berman-exposing-false-promise-shale-oil

Florida's new Republican governor "Ron DeSantis put out a statement announcing that he is going to direct the state Department of Environmental Protection [DEP] to adamantly oppose and ban fracking statewide in Florida", -before- fracking begins there. This was part of water-focused Executive Order 19-12 (Achieving More Now For Florida’s Environment), about which he said, "Our water and natural resources are the foundation of our economy and our way of life in Florida." https://www.wmnf.org/ron-desantis-florida-dep-oppose-fracking-off-shore-drilling/

"PA env. regulators are rolling out draft rules for controlling air pollution from the state’s thousands of existing oil and gas wells on Thursday... to curb direct emissions & leaks of volatile organic compounds from older well sites, storage tanks and other oil and gas facilities that aren’t covered by air pollution rules that DEP adopted earlier this year." - This will cut down on methane "as a side benefit because VOCs & methane commingle in natural gas." https://www.post-gazette.com/business/powersource/2018/12/12/air-pollution-oil-and-gas-existing-wells-shale-methane-Pennsylvania-DEP-EPA-Trump/stories/201812120164

"The Geological Survey of Canada & the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission launched an investigation to figure out what caused the tremor. ...A statement said they had confirmed there was active fracking happening near the epicentre when the quake struck. 'The likelihood this was induced … there's a very high correlation,' said [a] seismology research scientist with the Geological Survey of Canada. ...Western Alberta & northeast B.C. have a high rate of fracking-induced earthquakes, according to a study from the U. of Alberta." - NOT injection wells, FRACKING (see comment) https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/earthquake-fort-st-john-fracking-1.4927898
