Expansion of State’s Earthquake Monitoring System Coming

As Oklahoma Geological Survey Director Dr. Jeremy Boak told OK Energy Today recently, he’s working on perhaps getting someone beside the legislature to help finance the purchase of additional equipment to monitor Oklahoma’s earthquakes.

Since he doesn’t expect any funding from the legislature this year, he will look to the energy industry as well as other government entities including counties and emergency management agencies.

His plan calls for the acquisition of 20 new seismometers to be located in Oklahoma’s SCOOP and STACK. Eventually, he would like to expand the monitoring network to include eastern Oklahoma.

Listen to Jerry Bohnen’s interview of Dr. Boak.
