Most of the fracking fluids being used have proprietary chemical compositions.

It has become common for companies to publicly list their chemicals. Exact ratios are left proprietary. But the chemicals themselves are available online:

Some companies list their chemicals directly online, sorted by area.

Some have included benzene

Would you please point to claim of benzene being used?
