Inevitably, petroleum companies specializing in horizontal drilling or hydraulic fracturing, also known as “fracking“, will find their way into every state where shale or other gas-rich deposits may be located.  Many states and municipalities have taken actions to regulate this activity.  Among regulators’ licensing requirements are financial guarantee bonds (surety bonds).  Although this is a new obligation with no “base line” for surety, SURETY ONE HAS APPETITE!  We will consider any request received for fracking bonds. Visit us at, call (787) 333-0222 or (800) 373-2804, or email
