Subsequent to an earthquake in Ohio being associated with Hydraulic Fracturing, The Ohio Oil and Gas Association assembled a workgroup to research the issue and make recommendations on mitigating future events. The workgroup was comprised of OOGA members across a range of companies and backgrounds. The workgroup commissioned a White Paper on Induced Seismicity and Traffic Light Systems as Related to Hydraulic Fracturing in Ohio. The author of the White Paper is Ivan Wong who was on the Editorial Committee for the Primer and was a significant contributor to the final version. This White Paper was commissioned and completed prior to the Primer and, unlike the Primer, the White Paper focuses on seismicity associated with hydraulic fracturing and does prescribe some action.
