Florida Fracking Summit In Fort Myers
The Conservancy of Southwest Florida, Natural Resource Defense Council,
Earthjustice, Center for Biological Diversity and Earthworks will present
the 2015 Florida Fracking Summit to promote public awareness regard-
ing extreme oil extraction in Florida. The Summit will be held on Tuesday and
Wednesday, October 27 and 28 at the Holiday Inn Fort Myers Airport-Town
Center. For more information to register, visit www.flfrackingsummit.org.
Expert speakers will address the potential effects of extreme extraction techniques
on air, land, water and human health. The participants will also discuss current federal
and state laws, local government actions around the nation, and the future of extreme
extraction in Florida.
The oil and gas industry is now using extreme oil extraction techniques in Florida
involving the injection of chemicals and large amounts of freshwater to fracture or
dissolve oil bearing rock to increase production. These operations include hydraulic
fracturing (“fracking”) and acid stimulation. The “fracking” boom in other parts of the
country has led to documented cases of environmental degradation and a growing con-
cern for public health.
Improved extraction and refining technologies have led to a renewed interest in
Florida oil. Oil companies are now seeking to explore for oil over thousands of acres
of public and private lands, including portions of the Everglades. Currently, extreme
extraction techniques are unstudied in Florida, virtually unregulated, and often used in
With oil exploration proposed for over 170,000 acres of the Everglades, it is
important to understand the process of hydraulic fracturing and acid stimulation, cur-
rent federal and state regulations, and what we can do to safeguard our environment
and public health from oil drilling.
