    I think that the author should clarify that with a fracked reservoir you must invariably pump the oil to the surface, unlike the recent BP spill where you have reservoir pressure to create a wild spill or a “gusher”. The only spill potential is the handling at the pressure side of the pump, which can quickly be deprived of its electricity if a spill starts.
