The Termo Company wants to drill 12 NEW OIL WELLS just to the north of the Porter Ranch / Chatsworth area. Termo says that they don't plan to use FRACKING (hydraulic fracturing) in these new wells. However, Termo has ALREADY used this process just several hundred feet north of The Highlands at Porter Ranch community and The Renaissance at Porter Ranch. Sempra (The Gas Company) is also using these types of TOXIC CHEMICAL processes in their wells up there too. This information was obtained by Termo's own disclosure and from the California Dept. of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR).
There are also many "extreme extraction" drilling technologies that use the same and similare toxic, carcinogenic and flamable chemicals as fracking, with the same inherent dangers. They just have different names. So when Termo or LA County documents say "...no fracking..." that is meaningless as to the dangers to Porter Ranch. It is only meant to sooth and reassure the un-educated masses into letting their guard down and leave Termo alone to drill.
