Green Frac

We founded our Green Frac initiative in 2009 to reduce the environmental impact of hydraulic fracturing. Green Frac evaluates each chemical additive we use to determine its necessity and environmental effect. To date, we have eliminated anywhere from 10 % to 25 % of the additives once used at our major plays. We constantly search for new ways to further reduce our use of chemicals.

Green Frac, an industry-leading program, is developing simple guidelines for both Chesapeake and its vendors to safely and effectively handle chemicals at the surface and downhole.

We recognize people’s desire to understand the effects of our operations, so we voluntarily disclose information about all the chemicals we use for hydraulic fracturing through fracfocus.org.
