OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The head of a West Virginia-based company that specializes in recycling wastewater from oil and gas production is among those testifying at an Oklahoma public hearing on the link between wastewater disposal and an increase in earthquakes.

Brian Kalt of Fairmont Brine Processing spoke Tuesday during an oil and gas industry forum at the Oklahoma Capitol. The forum was hosted by state Rep. Richard Morrissette, who is a Democratic candidate for the Oklahoma Corporation Commission, which regulates oil and gas operations in Oklahoma.

Kalt says he is having discussions with Oklahoma-based oil and gas producers and is considering locating a wastewater treatment facility in Oklahoma. His company uses an evaporation and crystallization process to treat the briny wastewater that is a byproduct of oil and gas drilling.
