Frackers Subpoenaed by SEC?

30 July of 2011 by

According to FuelFix, it appears that natural gas “frackers” could face a new obstacle to their expansion, in addition to opposition from communities across America to the threat that fracking poses to water supplies and public health.

A number of lawmakers have called on the Securities and Exchange Commission to investigate aspects of the natural gas E&P business, namely whether companies are reporting the financial viability of shales accurately.

Now, Fuel Fix reports that “the SEC has pulled the trigger,” with “subpoenas seek[ing] documents and information regarding the actual performance of shale gas wells against forecasted orprojected performance, the propriety of decline curves for the wells,and the calculation and public disclosure of full-cycle margins.”

This will definitely be a story to keep a close eye on.
