    I’m extremely hopeful that we have as much natural gas in these new fields as predicted. I’m concerned about these unknown substances being injected into the formations, however.

    I can’t believe that these companies are allowed to inject secret chemicals like this. To say that their proprietary rights protect them from telling us what they are injecting, by comparing it to Coca Cola is ludicrous. For one thing, I’d want to know Coke’s ingredients, if they wanted to inject it into these areas.

    Furthermore, it’s generally illegal to inject anything into our (shallow, at least) aquifers, without permission of whichever agencies are responsible for protecting our groundwater. What makes these gas companies so special?

    Oh, yeah; I forgot. They’ve bought our goverment officials, so can do whatever they want :(
