Alaska is considering stricter fracking rules, including disclosure of chemicals companies pump into the ground, notifying everyone nearby and testing water quality before and after fracking under new rules proposed by state regulators. The state does not yet have any shale production, but the North Slope could hold up to 2B barrels of shale oil and 80T cu. ft. of shale gas.
