'Do not operate' quake-linked disposal wells -- EPA draft report

U.S. EPA officials say oil and gas wastewater injection wells that are causing earthquakes should stop operating if there's no way to stop the shaking. But there is a variety of other options to consider first, according to a "decision model" outlined in a draft report obtained by EnergyWire. That includes scaling back how much well owners can inject, requiring more data collection or public education about "the complexities of injection-induced seismicity."
