“Oil and gas producer Encana Corp halted work at a drill site in northwest Oklahoma following two earthquakes within a day in the same area,” according to Thursday’s Financial Post article. Early detection is a service that we pride ourselves on at ISTI. According to the article, “several years ago, Oklahoma suffered a spike in earthquakes that authorities tied to the underground disposal of saltwater.” Local authorities cracked down in 2018, announcing new seismic requirements and penalties for companies who do not meet the requirements. Non-compliance risks costly business halting and shut down, and now early detection is as important for businesses and communities as ever.
