What has been happening with Induced Seismicity since the release of the Induced Seismicity Primer by the States First Initiative?

March 8,2017

In September of 2015, the States First Initiative (a joint IOGCC (Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission) and GWPC (Ground Water Protection Council) Initiative) released a Primer on Technical and Regulatory Considerations Informing Risk Management and Mitigation to serve as a reference to regulatory agencies in setting rules on addressing potential injection induced seismicity.  Since then some states have set forth operational requirements and have built or enhanced their own  seismometer arrays.  This presentation will attempt to explain how some states are handling the issue since the release of this reference.
