WASHINGTON, March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --Background: Following is a statement by Daniel Whitten, Vice President of Strategic Communications for America's Natural Gas Alliance on the introduction of the FRAC Act today by Senator Robert Casey (D-PA), and Representatives Diana DeGette (D-CO), Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) and Jared Polis (D-CO).
"The natural gas community is committed to the safe and responsible development of this abundant American energy source. That is why ANGA, along with other leading industry trade associations, has stepped forward to support disclosure on a well-by-well basis on both public and private lands. This disclosure will be occurring through an online public registry that is being developed by the Ground Water Protection Council and the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission. We do not support pre-empting their important effort with new federal regulations."
