Arkansas, time to shut down another 2 injection wells

The map is full of the rubble of shut-down injection wells.  If we could go more than 6 months, there would be a lot.  Seems that you get 6 earthquakes, and the well shuts down.  If the wells aren't getting shut down, then you have an interesting 'saturation' phenomenon, but I doubt it.  I wonder if these well guys are making money by this 'smash and grab' technique -- go for the fractured Precambrian, line up all the trucks, and inject like hell, until the earthquakes come.  :)
