North Dakota proposes new rules on hydraulic fracturing

On 11/9/2011, the State of North Dakota proposed new rules governing the practice of hydraulic fracturing.  The proposed rules can be seen at https://www.dmr.nd.gov/oilgas/rules2012changes.pdf.  With respect to chemical disclosure the proposed rule states:

"After the hydraulic fracture stimulation is performed the owner, operator, or service company shall post on the FracFocus Chemical Disclosure Registry the following stimulation detail:
Fracture date, state, county, American petroleum institute number, operator name, well name and number, longitude, latitude, longitude/latitude projection, production type, true vertical depth, total water volume, and hydraulic fracturing fluid composition as follows:
(1) Trade name
(2) Supplier
(3) Purpose
(4) Ingredients
(5) Chemical abstract number
(6) Maximum ingredient concentration in additive
(7) Maximum ingredient concentration in hydraulic fracturing fluid
3. If during the stimulation, the pressure in the intermediate casing-surface casing annulus
exceeds three hundred fifty pounds per square inch [2413 kilopascals] gauge, the owner or operator shall verbally notify the director as soon as practicable but no later than twenty-four hours following the incident and post on the FracFocus Chemical Disclosure Registry the following stimulation detail:
Fracture date, state, county, American petroleum institute number, operator name, well name and number, longitude, latitude, longitude/latitude projection, production type, true vertical depth, total water volume, and hydraulic fracturing fluid composition as follows:
a. Trade name
b. Supplier
c. Purpose
d. Ingredients
e. Chemical abstract number
f. Maximum ingredient concentration in additive
g. Maximum ingredient concentration in hydraulic fracturing fluid"
