State panel set to vote on fracking fluid disclosure | News
DENVER (AP) -- Colorado regulators are set to deliberate on proposed new regulations for hydraulic fracturing.
The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission is scheduled to meet Monday to vote on whether to require natural gas drillers to disclose all the ingredients in their fracking fluid. It's also considering whether to give local officials 48 hours' notice of fracking operations.
Politicians representing Commerce City said they were caught off guard by recent fracking in Adams County.
The commission took testimony on the proposal during an all-day hearing last week.
Halliburton and others have said they would support listing the ingredients but they don't want to publicly disclose their amounts.
