The overall process used at PVG isn't fracking as it doesn't remove matter from the ground but transfers heat from it. Most of the quakes caused by fracking are due to forcing vast amounts of "waste" water at high pressure back into the wells which also isnt the case at PVG. Any effects at PVG would be very local and not impinge one jot on the immense pressures required to shift billions of tons of magma away from the Kilauea summit region.
