Fracking Supplier to Disclose 100% of Chemicals
The company says it’s committed to full disclosure and says it’s possible to disclose 100 percent of chemicals used “without compromising our formulations — a balance that increases public trust while encouraging commercial innovation.”
Launched in 2011, the voluntary registry shows fracking chemical additives on a well-by-well basis. A study published last year by the Harvard Environmental Law Program’s Policy Initiative, however, cited “serious deficiencies” in the disclosures.
Earlier this month, Exxon said it would report by September on how it manages fracking risks, including air quality, water, chemical usage and road-damage impacts.
