CAPP Issues Latest Report on Hydraulic Fracturing

The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers or CAPP recently issued its "Canada-Wide Hydraulic Fracturing Operating Practices."  According to the CAPP website these operating practices are "designed to improve water management and water and fluids reporting for shale gas and tight gas development across Canada."  

This release follows CAPP's "Guiding Principles for Hydraulic Fracturing" which it released in September of 2011.  Importantly, these guiding principles outline CAPP's suggestions on public disclosure of hydraulic fracturing fluid.  With this, CAPP is the latest group to weigh in on the hydraulic disclosure rules.
