Before Fracking, Testing the Waters


Author(s):
Abstract:
Fracking cannot officially begin in the state for 18 months, but that has not stopped a Texas company from preliminary testing. Tar Heel Triassic Resources Inc. plans to run tests in Lee County to determine \"orientation, structure and depth\" of the state's Triassic basin. The company hopes to perform three-dimensional testing, a procedure which does not require permits through the state's Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
