The study, led by Prof. Katie Keranen of Cornell University, who previously worked at the U.S. Geological Survey as part of its Earthquake Hazards Program, looked at the extremely high number of small quakes in Jones, Oklahoma, over the past five years - 2,547 in total - and found a link between oil and gas extraction near Jones and the town's seismic activity.

"The existing criteria for an induced earthquake do not allow earthquakes associated with the well activity to occur this far away from the wellbore," said Katie Keranen, assistant professor of geophysics at Cornell University, who led the study of the Jones earthquake swarm. "Our results, using seismology and hydrogeology, show a strong link between a small number of wells and earthquakes migrating up to 50 kilometers away" said Keranen.
Pumping wastewater from natural gas ..., 8 July 2014 [cached]
Pumping wastewater from natural gas drilling sites into wells buried deep underground is probably why Oklahoma is experiencing more small earthquakes than California, a new study says.Like previous research, the study says hydraulic fracturing for gas cannot be directly linked to increased seismic activity, but the injection of wastewater from drilling at disposal sites creates fluid pressure below the surface that can trigger earthquakes of magnitude 3 or higher, said its lead author, Katie Keranen, an assistant professor of seismology at Cornell University. - INDUSTRIAL, 2 May 2014 [cached]
In central Oklahoma, a cluster of four high-volume wastewater injection wells triggered quakes up to 30 miles (about 50 kilometers) away, said lead study author Katie Keranen, a geophysicist at Cornell University in New York. The earthquakes have since spread farther outward, as fluids migrate farther from the massive injection wells, she said.

The latest study by a group led by former University of Oklahoma researcher Katie Keranen suggested high-volume disposal wells can cause earthquakes more than 18 miles away.
Information like that has Edmond resident Collins-Clark looking for a new place to live. She said she just feels the area's earthquake activity is here to stay.
"It doesn't feel like it's going to all of a sudden stop," she said. "That makes me very, very sad."
Collins-Clark said she is "profoundly saddened" to be leaving the home that she has shared with her husband for more than 17 years. He has been there for 26 years.
Collins-Clark said she hopes to move to a less seismically active area by August. She wants to stay close enough to maintain her counseling practice in Edmond, although she is semi-retired.
