Energy Bulletin: Interpreting the ERCB’s “Hydraulic Fracturing” Bulletin


On January 23, 2012 Alberta’s Energy Resources Conservation Board (ERCB) issued Bulletin 2012-02 entitled Hydraulic Fracturing: Interwellbore Communication between Energy Wells to provide guidance to operators using hydraulic fracturing in horizontal wells.

Industry was also reminded of its obligation to plan safe and effective hydraulic fracturing operations.
