The development of this website is a joint effort between the Ground Water Protection Council (GPWC)
and the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission (IOGCC). This website has been developed, and will
continue to be refined, based on the goals of a resolution passed at the 2010 GWPC Annual Forum and
a Memorandum of Understanding between the GWPC and IOGCC (see below). The belief that the dissemination
of information of the chemical constituents used in hydraulic fracturing is best made through the regulatory
authority of the states has precipitated this effort. Through the organizations joint effort and in
cooperation between the states and industry groups the design and testing of this site has been performed.
The two main goals of this site are to provide a central warehousing site for all of industry to voluntarily
provide chemical constituent data, used on a well-by-well basis, and provide education to the public on the
processes and chemicals used to hydraulically fracture an oil and gas well.
Note: Use of this website and the data made available on the website is covered under the “Web Site Terms

Ground Water Protection Council
Interstate Oil and Gas Compact
The Ground Water Protection Council is a national association of state ground water and underground
injection control agencies whose mission is to promote the protection and conservation of ground water
resources for all beneficial uses, recognizing ground water as a critical component of the ecosystem.
The Ground Water Protection Council provides a forum for stakeholder communication and research in order
to improve governments’ role in the protection and conservation of ground water.
The Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission is a multi-state government agency that is passionate
about advancing the quality of life for all Americans. However, without energy, the quality of life we
enjoy today would not exist. That's why the Commission works to ensure our nation's oil and natural gas
resources are conserved and maximized while protecting health, safety and the environment.
