Unconventional oil and gas production provides a rapidly growing energy source; however, high-production states in the United States, such as Oklahoma, face sharply rising numbers of earthquakes.

Good morning Octo and JR. İmage

Can't say I would want to live there. The place is ripe for some serious sink holes opening up!

I don't know about the big earthquake Octo, they are saying fracking sort of works like a pressure release valve creating many smaller earthquakes to avoid future big ones. dunno.gif
