The same week that Oklahoma regulators announced new earthquake rules stemming from growing fracking operations in the state’s two big oil plays, the STACK and the SCOOP, central Oklahoma experienced a 3.2 magnitude quake Thursday morning.
The U.S. Geological Survey recorded the earthquake at 8:21 a.m. with an epicenter about 4 miles east-northeast of Edmond. It had a recorded depth of less than 4 miles. So far, no significant damages have been reported.
Technically, the quake did not occur in the targeted SCOOP and STACK zones since they are located west of where the epicenter was located.
