  • Introduction

    Public concern over hydraulic fracturing currently is high. This information page is intended to describe the current approach of the California Department of Conservation’s Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources (“Division”) to the practice and regulation of hydraulic fracturing. Viewers are encouraged to visit this page periodically as the content may change as new information becomes available to the Division. The Division recognizes that other members of the public may have differing views about the practice of hydraulic fracturing in our State.
