Texas rules would disclose frac fluid components in drilling

Elizabeth Ames Jones, chairman of the Texas Railroad Commission, is seeking to craft rules that mandate disclosure of certain chemicals used in the hydraulic fracturing process for drilling natural gas and oil wells, the commission announced.

“A common sense frac fluid disclosure policy will balance the Railroad Commission’s dual mission to prevent the waste of Texas’ energy resources and to protect the environment and the public’s health and safety,” she said.
