(Washington, DC) — The Environmental Protection Agency says in a new report that oil and gas companies injected more than 32-million gallons of diesel fuel into wells in 19 state, including Arkansas.

BJ Services told the House Energy and Commerce Committee it used 1700 gallons of a diesel-based solution for fracking in Arkansas and Oklahoma between 2005 and 2007.

At that time, the company was doing work between Russellville and Fort Smith.
