Anadarko Joins Ad Blitz to Thwart Colorado Fracking Curbs

Anadarko Petroleum Corp. and Noble Energy Inc., Colorado’s largest oil producers, are waging a media campaign to promote the benefits of hydraulic fracturing as residents push statewide measures to restrict the drilling technique as a threat to the environment.

“It’s all eyes on Colorado,” said Jon Haubert, a spokesman for Coloradans for Responsible Energy Development, created by the energy companies to answer critics of fracking, which uses pressurized water, chemicals and sand to break rock formations. “The oil and gas industry hasn’t done a good job of explaining fracking.”
