EPA revises permitting for using diesel in hydraulic fracturing

See on Scoop.itFrackInformant

EPA developed the guidance to clarify how companies can comply with a law passed by Congress in 2005, which exempted hydraulic fracturing operations from the requirement to obtain a UIC permit, except in cases where diesel fuel is used as a fracturing fluid.
