Hydraulic fracturing was first used in Texas in the 1950s, but the state does not track wells that use the practice. In 2021, the state government halted the issuing of hydraulic fracturing permits after the practice was linked to an increase in earthquakes.
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.
