SPE Launches Informational Hydraulic Fracturing Website

To help create public awareness and promote education around a key challenge in the industry, SPE launched a new website devoted to factual, transparent information about hydraulic fracturing.

The site, part of SPE’s educational resource, is aimed at the general public and media, and is an important tool for members to use to address key misconceptions about fracturing. Using SPE technical material as a background, the website’s tone and imagery is easy to understand without relying on technical terminology. The website was developed with the help of the Energy Education Task Force, which includes Ford Brett, Bob Chase, George King, Norm Warpinski, and Emmanuel Garland.

The plan is for the website to continue to grow with facts, imagery, and current news that tell a complete and accurate story. Please take a few minutes to visit the site at
