Austin Holland, a seismologist at the Oklahoma Geological Survey and author of a recent report on seismic activity in Love County, told The Oklahoman in October that it is still unclear why the state has experienced a significant increase in seismic activity over the past four years.
“There are researchers that say all of the earthquakes we've had recently have to be due to oil and gas injection,'' Holland said.
“I don't think it can be that simple. I don't think we can explain it all through changes in our oil and gas activity or that somehow we've hit the tipping point for the state. It's an interesting question and something I spend a lot of time thinking about.”
