The FracTracker Alliance has released a new report on water use by the oil and gas industry in California — and data is alarming as a severe drought in California continues, despite the recent storms: www.fractracker.org/…

“We found that the oil and gas industry consumed over 4.6 billion gallons of freshwater for extraction operations in California during the 3 year period from 2018-2020,” said Kyle Ferrar, author of the report. “In total, California oil and gas operations consume upwards of 280 billion gallons of water per year for extraction and refining annually.”

The report includes data summaries and maps that highlight the need for water conservation by California’s oil and gas industry, the most powerful corporate lobby in the state.
