    ANGA commends FracFocus on its anniversary

    ANGA

    The following is a statement by Dan Whitten, vice president of strategic communications at America's Natural Gas Alliance, on the two-year anniversary of FracFocus, a state-run online registry offering well-by-well information to the public about the contents of hydraulic fracturing fluids used in natural gas development.

    “America’s Natural Gas Alliance applauds the Ground Water Protection Council and the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission for the progress they have made possible through FracFocus. In its first two years, FracFocus has established itself as the definitive resource for people seeking credible, up-to-date information about the additives used during the hydraulic fracturing process.”

    “Public disclosure via Fracfocus.org has been integrated into natural gas regulations in some 11 states – a true endorsement of its value as a tool for transparency and the public confidence it brings to the development process. In just two years, Fracfocus.org now contains information on more than 40,000 wells from over 500 companies and has logged more than 312,495 unique visits to the website."

    "All ANGA member companies participate in this public disclosure effort.This reflects their commitment to continuing to responsibly develop natural gas and to being open and transparent with the public about how we do our work."
