Oil and gas companies must report earthquakes near Fox Creek, new rules say

Oil and gas companies working in the Fox Creek area must report any earthquake stronger than 2.0 magnitude, according to new rules from the Alberta Energy Regulator.  As explained in this Edmonton Journal article, the rules also stipulate that activity must cease if an earthquake over 4.0 magnitude is recorded. The rules apply only to the Fox Creek area, not the whole province.
