FracFocus.org, the hydraulic-fracturing chemical disclosure registry, is preparing for an upgrade. The data entry site for "FracFocus 2.0," as its creators call it, is expected to "go live" Nov. 1, according to a note to oil and gas drilling companies reporting on the site, obtained by EnergyWire. "For months you may have been hearing about upgrades happening to FracFocus' data entry site," wrote Mike Nickolaus of the Ground Water Protection Council (GWPC), the Oklahoma City nonprofit group that runs the site. "This email is to announce the launch of that new operator site." In response to interest from states that are allowing drillers to use the industry-funded, privately run site to satisfy state disclosure requirements, GWPC has been planning an upgrade that will allow people to search disclosures by date, chemical name and chemical identification" />
