Final Fracture Pressure Gradient Values

In 1992 and 1993, the Region 5 Underground Injection Control Program public noticed draft and final values for fracture pressure gradients for specific oil fields in Michigan. These values were published in the Federal Register in three groups. The column headed "FRN" indicates in which Federal Register Notice the final fracture pressure gradient (FPG) value for each field was published. (Internet-accessible copies of the Federal Register do not go back this far, so these notices are not viewable over the Internet at this time.)
