FracFocus cited as preferred means of disclosure
Recently the state of Montana issued a hydraulic fracturing chemical disclosure rule that allows operators to meet state reporting requirements by submitting chemical information through the FracFocus site. A similar rule is under review in Louisiana.
In Texas, the state legislature recently passed a law that allows operators to submit their chemical information to FracFocus as a means of meeting regulatory requirements.
These actions are a recognition of the important role FracFocus plays in the disclosure process and demonstrate that states are doing what is necessary to keep the public informed.
