Oil and Gas Disposal Well Under Investigation as Earthquakes Shake Southeast Oklahoma

The strongest of a series of earthquakes that have shaken eastern Oklahoma this month drew the attention of many residents in Quinton. The unusual activity, which scientists have linked to injected saltwater produced as part of the recovery of oil and gas in other locations, prompted the Oklahoma Corporation Commission’s induced seismicity department to order the owner of a nearby well to suspend operations on Aug. 16. Waterbridge Arkoma Operating owns the well site, which is known as Strait 1 SWD. The Strait 1 SWD was granted permission to inject salt water into the geological formations of Simpson, Tulip Creek, McLish, Wilcox, and Oil Creek.
