On February 27, 2013, California’s Division of Oil, Gas & Geothermal Resources (DOGGR) announced the second in a series of at least three stakeholder workshops to seek input on the “discussion draft” of proposed regulations (pdf) on hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking.”
The workshop, which is designed to receive input from industry, the environmental community, other regulators, and interested members of the public on the discussion draft regulations, will take place on March 13, 2013, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Four Points Sheraton, 5101 California Avenue, Bakersfield, 93309 (map). At least one additional workshop will be held in Sacramento, with the date, time and location to be announced soon.
The discussion draft regulations, which we previously analyzed, includes provisions for pre-fracturing well testing, advance notification, monitoring during and after fracturing operations, disclosure of materials used in fracturing fluid, trade secrets, and storage and handling of hydraulic fracturing fluids.
