- Ground Water Protection Council (GWPC) and Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission (IOGCC), “Potential Injection-Induced Seismicity Associated with Oil & Gas Development: A Primer on Technical and Regulatory Considerations Informing Risk Management and Mitigation” (2015). This primer was developed by a StatesFirst (an initiative of the GWPC and the IOGCC) work group composed of state oil and gas regulatory agencies and geological surveys. This primer gives an overview of induced seismicity and how it is assessed and offers advice for regulators on evaluating and managing the risks of induced seismicity, as well as on developing response strategies.
