The Cost of Economic Growth

  • The potential oil patch boom for our area is a welcomed challenge.
  • Our objectives should always be:
  • Grow the economy but protect the people and the environment
  • Being proactive in any business venture allows you to
  • plan ahead and not get into a panic mode

We could end up with an ad like this one as in the case in Arkansas.

When we plan well and do the necessary things to prove that “Fracking” is just a normal exploration and production process everyone is a winner.

What Is Hydraulic Fracturing? Hydraulic fracturing is a process used in nine out of 10 natural gas wells in the United States, where millions of gallons of water, sand and chemicals are pumped underground to break apart the rock and release the gas. Scientists are worried that the chemicals used in fracturing may pose a threat either underground or when waste fluids are handled and sometimes spilled on the surface.

DOE/NETL Research Program

  • DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) administers an Environmental Program
  • that aims to find solutions to environmental concerns by focusing on the following program
  • Elements
    • Produced water and fracture flowback water management, particularly in gas shale development areas,
    • Water resource management in oil and gas basins,
    • Air quality issues associated with oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) activities,
    • Surface impact issues associated with E&P activities,
    • Water resource management in Arctic oil and gas development areas,
    • Decision-making tools that help operators balance resource development and environmental protection, and
    • Online information and data exchange systems that support regulatory streamlining
  • Technology Solutions for Mitigating Environmental Impacts of Oil and Gas E&P Activity http://www.netl.doe.gov/publications/factsheets/program/Prog101.pdf
  • Natural Gas and Petroleum Projects, Environmental Solutions, Produced Water Management
