Baker Hughes to divulge all fracking chemicals

Baker Hughes (BHI) says it will reveal all chemicals it uses in hydraulic fracturing, information other big industry players have resisted providing as trade secrets.

BHI says its new data format will calm concerns of activist investors and environmental groups, as it will include in its newly formatted reports a complete analysis of its fluid mixtures, down to tiny trace elements of ammonium hydroxide.

Shareholder groups have so far failed to force Exxon, Chevron and others to disclose several quantitative metrics around shale-gas drilling.
