Community and environmental groups in Dallas are banding together to oppose the recommendations of the city’s natural gas drilling task force.
A University of Texas study says there’s no direct link between groundwater contamination and a controversial process to extract oil and gas known as fracking.
The word “fracking” — hydraulic fracturing — is a technique long used by the oil and gas industry. But it’s not in the dictionary and the industry hates it.
As debates over hydraulic fracturing wage on, a Canadian company has developed a way to frack without using millions of gallons of water. GasFrac uses a propane gel instead of the treasured natural substance. Now the obstacle is getting the industry on board.
The natural gas drilling process has been saddled with great debate — mainly concerning the environmental impact. But one “fracking” company is actually putting back what they take out.

While many North Texans are being asked to conserve water, large pipelines are pulling water out of the Trinity River in Fort Worth.
Some North Texas researchers hope to become the first to figure out if the controversial hydraulic fracturing or “fracking” process is to blame for chemicals in well water.
Texas could soon become the first state to require drilling companies to disclose the chemicals used to crack rock in the search for natural gas.
