Natural-Gas Fracking Rules Considered by U.S. for Federal Lands

The U.S. is weighing whether to impose new rules on hydraulic fracturing to extract natural gas on public lands.

Companies such as Anadarko Petroleum Corp. of The Woodlands, Texas, and Treasure Resources Inc. of Windsor, Colorado, may be required to disclose chemicals used in the drilling and adopt well-integrity standards as part of the permit process, Robert Abbey, director of the Bureau of Land Management, said in an interview today in Bloomberg’s Washington office.
