“In Kentucky, high-volume hydraulic fracture stimulation is defined by state law as any treatment that uses more than 80,000 gallons of fluid in any stage or exceeds 320,000 gallons for all stages. As of 2015, a majority of Kentucky’s natural gas wells used hydraulic fracturing.”
FracTracker provides state-specific data on issues such as:
- Locations of oil and gas facilities
- Pipelines and processor locations
- Production amount of oil and gas generated
- Amounts of waste generated from oil and gas
The data folders may also contain information on other energy generation locations, data from different years, and data on violations committed by oil and gas facilities. Amount of information and types of information will vary by state. Get data.
