Interactive Workshop Focusing on Environmental Issues Facing
Shale Gas Developers in the U.S. Rocky Mountain Region
Oil and gas production from shale formations in the United States has transformed the energy landscape and is providing significant benefits to U.S. public in the form of lower energy prices, jobs and energy security. Continued development of this important resource however relies on a clear picture of the environmental impact that drilling, completion and production creates. This workshop and field trip, sponsored by RPSEA and the National Energy Technology Laboratory, present an opportunity for geologists, engineers and field operators in the Rocky Mountain region to explore these issues from the perspectives of the impact on water and air. Primary focus will be technology being developed to better understand and also mitigate these environmental issues.
