Come close to me, and we will see what seismic eruptions happen.

    I see, now. You obviously have zero knowledge about what hydraulic fracturing is. So, before you threaten to whip my ass, I suggesr you read a book on the subject.

    Some. For fracking. Surface water in Texas is scarce and using it for fracking is competing with municipal uses.

    Companies are racing to find ways to recycle the water used in hydraulic fracturing, chasing an emerging market that could be worth billions of dollars.

    From energy industry giants Halliburton Corp. to smaller outfits such as Ecologix Environmental Systems LLC, companies are pursuing technologies to reuse the "frack water" that comes out of wells after hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking"—the process of using highly pressured water and chemicals to coax oil and gas out of shale-rock formations.


    While the recycled water can't currently be cleaned up enough for drinking or growing crops, it can be cleaned of chemicals and rock debris and reused to frack additional wells, which could sharply cut the costs that energy companies face securing and disposing of water.

    Some companies are finding it is still cheaper in many parts of the U.S. to inject the wastewater deep underground instead of cleaning it, which has slowed adoption of recycling technology. But experts say that is likely to change as fracking grows.
    Most wells in the Eagle Ford shale area in Texas will be tapped out in 20 years according to the industry. No one is going to invest millions on cleaning up technologies for fracking water when they can just inject it into the ground and be done.

    Wait...I guess you are right. Evaporation pits is recycling.

    You don't have to understand hydraulic fracturing to whip ass and reading books doesn't help either.

    I drilled commercial water wells in Irion, Reagan and Crockett counties. It's illegal to produce a commercial in the public water zone, which is the top water zone. We would set steel casing--9 5/8"--from the surface, past the water zone and then drill into the lower zones. The lower zones aren't fit for human consumption, anyway.

    In Loving County, we drilled into the Santa Rosa acquifer, which is straight salt water. Its not as apocolyptic as you make out.

    Come closer. I can't hear you from there.

    Seriously though, I do know what I speak of and have friends in geological engineering. They all know what's up. It is you who is uninformed.

    Obviously neither you, nor your friends understand how fracking works.

    Fine. Then you are right here, right now, and now you can explain how it works to all of us. Go...
