AOGCC Fracking Hearing Dec. 15
The Issue: Current rules do not allow Alaskans to review and comment on applications for oil & gas hydraulic fracturing (fracking) operations near their homes and communities.
Get Involved: Cook Inletkeeper recently submitted a proposed rule to the Alaska Oil & Gas Conservation Council (AOGCC) that would require AOGCC to make fracking applications publicly available, and to provide Alaskans the opportunity to shape final permitting decisions.

- Alaskans have a right-to-know about fracking operations in and around their communities.
- Fracking operations often involve large volumes of water, which in turn create large volumes of waste water.
- Oil & gas operations aggravate climate change, and fracking only makes it worse.
