Additives Used in Hydraulic Fracturing Process Made Available by Oil and Gas Companies Nationwide

Chief Oil & Gas was one of the first companies to voluntarily make the fluids and additives used in the completion of its natural gas well development and hydraulic fracturing process available to the public.

Chief Oil & Gas Supports Full Public Disclosure of Fracturing Chemicals

Chief Oil & Gas was one of the first companies to voluntarily make the fluids and additives used in the completion of its natural gas well development and hydraulic fracturing process available to the public.

Earlier this year, Chief joined with the oil & gas industry nationwide to publicly disclose this information on a national registry, FracFocus.org. The site allows the public to access information on the components of the fluids used in the development of each well. The registry is searchable by state, county, well operator or well number.

Chief supports requiring full public disclosure of the chemical composition of the fluids and additives used to fracture stimulate oil & gas wells. Transparency and honest communication with the community are key values at Chief Oil & Gas.

“We are encouraged that operators, regulators and the public are working together to provide this important information to help assure the public that our operations are safe as we continue to responsibly develop natural gas,” said Kristi Gittins, Vice President of Industry and Public Affairs for Chief.

Chief Oil & Gas has implemented many best practices over the past year to promote transparency and protect the environment.
