  1. Fracking is probably unlikely in this type of field (and very unlikely to cause any surface damage)
    My concern would be whether this is any subsidence at surface related to oil extraction from the reservoir. This would be easily mitigated by water injection to replace the extracted oil.
    I’d recommend:
    Ask the operator if there is likely to be any reservoir compaction and related subsidence at the surface
    If there is a possibility what are they doing to check ? (Tilt meters, satellite surveys….)
    What mitigation? eg water injection. (This may already be happening but I don’t know enough about the field)
