Premier Christy Clark made the announcement today at the B.C. Oil and Gas Conference in Fort Nelson.

She hopes the plan will increase transparency around fracking practices used by the oil and gas industry.

The online registry is part of a bigger project to ensure water is protected and conserved as shale gas development occurs.

Currently, the industry is required to maintain records of what is used when fracking and provide them to the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission if requested.

The database will list locations where fracking is taking place, as well as details about the practices and additives used in the process.
