Did they really? There's no fault line there. I've checked everywhere I can find. It must have been because of fracking.

Re: 3.9 in west Texas
I live in the Texas Panhandle, first off, where was this quake centered?!?!?

I didn't feel anything today...

And yes we have minor fault lines that follow numerous draws and creek beds in this area, but they are minor...3.9 is a very big quake for these type of faults...

Did you see the Avalanche-Journal's series a few months ago about fracking? I think they decided Snyder's eq's were because of fracking. Idk, sometimes I think they use it as an excuse. I saw a map once with all kinds of very small fault lines on the cap, but I've never been able to find it again.

It was a 4.2 or something close to it 20 years ago. I lived in Odessa, Midland now, at the time. I was 9 years old. Still remember it.

 Quoting: Texan Buckeye


Fracking in our area is pretty shallow in depth, because most oil and gas wells up here are less than 4000 feet in depth. However, fracking, or salt-water flooding can lubricate minor faults in areas of bedrock allowing them to slip. Still these quakes aren't usually big...2.5 or less...

We don't really use "Fracking" in terms of "Fracturing Shale Formations" up here...these are oil sands, very porous in nature, so water flooding is the more popular option up here, although they will sometimes use "detergents" in that flooding process...

Water flooding may actually be worse than hydro-fracking...because they pump a lot more into these loose formations...
