As natural gas prices soared, so too did fracking.
That’s because the U.S. shale gas boom is now booming as well, with fracking boomers flooding into the shale fields of Texas and Oklahoma.
Now, natural gas and fracking are being used as a tool in the U-S-first war on climate change.
That means a natural gas boom in the future could be in danger of being used in a similar way as fracking was.
Now, in an effort to protect the environment, the U,S.
government is requiring that all natural gas production be based on technology that uses the most environmentally friendly methods of extraction, including shale gas.
But the drilling boom in natural gas is not a good idea.
It’s a money grab, and it’s not good for the economy, according to environmental and energy experts.
And it will be used to build up a new industry.
For a while now, there has been a surge in interest in natural-gas drilling in the United States.
Since natural gas extraction was first pioneered in the 19th century, natural-gases have been used in fracking in several ways.
But since the boom in shale gas, the industry has expanded dramatically.
The fracking boom is the biggest change in the industry since the industrial revolution, and is now considered the most profitable.
But now the boom is being used to boost a new industrial industry, and the government is taking steps to protect that industry.
The Environmental Protection Agency is demanding that all U.T. drilling be based in natural resources that can be extracted using “low-carbon technologies,” like natural gas.
And the rules will likely apply to the oil and gas industry, too.
The agency said it’s in “concern about the use of shale gas as a fuel source.”
The U. S. Department of Energy is considering allowing drilling in all of the U t s largest shale deposits.
And it’s considering giving up some of its exploration and production of the deposits.
But natural gas will be the new fuel source, because the industry says it’s cheap.
The industry says that natural gas uses only one-fifth of the energy of oil.
And natural gas has been getting cheaper for decades.
That has made it a cheap way to get natural gas from shale formations, and now the U is trying to stop that trend.
The new rules mean that companies can only drill for oil and natural gas on certain sites.
And they must make sure their wells aren’t used for fracking or fracking fluids.
In addition, drilling companies must get approval from the EPA to do fracking in areas where natural gas can’t be extracted.
And drilling companies also must put up signs saying, “Do not frack in areas with high methane pollution or areas where there is evidence of high levels of methane contamination.”
The rule will also limit the amount of natural gas that can flow into pipelines from one company to another.
Natural gas can flow through pipelines if it’s at least 100 feet below the ground.
But the agency says it wants to make sure that drilling wells aren`t used for hydraulic fracturing.
Fracking fluids are usually injected into a well at a wellhead, and then it’s pumped back out of the well.
That process takes a long time, so it’s difficult to get to the gas.
But some natural gas fields, like the Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania and the Barnett Shale of Texas, are very well known for methane leaks, according the EPA.
There’s also some methane pollution in some wells that has leaked into the ground, and that can also cause a leak.
So if you drill into an oil well, you can’t see it, because you have to pump the fluid back out.
That`s what natural gas wells do.
One of the rules also requires companies to monitor the air around their drilling operations.
If you do find a leak, you have 30 days to notify the EPA and the U Department of Interior.
To be sure that companies don’t use fracking fluids, companies must make an assessment of how much methane is leaking into the environment.
The EPA is also requiring companies to do a study of how well-tested fracking is and how it affects drinking water.
While the industry is pushing for the new rules, the agency is also pushing for more regulations, like more monitoring.
The EPA said it will continue to work with the drilling companies to address the challenges of the oil industry.
It will work with states to protect communities from leaks, and work with companies to make it more difficult for them to make false or misleading statements about fracking and gas prices.
More than 1,500 companies have already applied to drill for natural gas in the Mariposa Shale, and at least 1,000 have applications for the Barnett shale.
