Hydraulic Fracturing and Legal Frameworks
Peter Hardy. The phenomenon of shale gas is both topical and controversial. Its proponents claim that it is a clean, environmentally friendly and abundant source of cheap natural gas; its opponents believe the opposite. In several countries it is a fast-growing industry and operations have begun in the UK. Uncommon technologies, notably hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, are necessary for shale extraction to be economical. Shale gas has faced some difficulties over concerns regarding environmental pollution.
As oil and gas development increases across the nation, so does public concern regarding the potential environmental impacts of the extraction process. These energy resources are often extracted by a process referred to as hydraulic fracturing fracking. While the hydraulic fracturing process has many safeguards and restrictions to protect groundwater resources, routine sampling and testing of your private well water is recommended in order to determine its baseline quality and to monitor for possible impacts over time. The following resources will provide you with general information regarding hydraulic fracturing, water quality testing guidelines, and frequently asked questions.

About shale gas and hydraulic fracturing (fracking)
The United States is the biggest energy consumer in the world, accentuating its energy security priorities in twenty-first century geopolitics. The U. Although oil continues to play a central role in the international energy market, the United States has doubled its production over the last six years and is now importing less The Economist , As the United States positions itself in the global energy market, it also faces the task of overcoming environmental issues linked to the generation of electricity, energy, and fossil fuels. Since , the Obama administration has increased energy efficiency by adopting an environmental policy to combat climate change.
Hydraulic fracturing , also called fracking , fracing , hydrofracking , fraccing , frac'ing , and hydrofracturing , is a well stimulation technique involving the fracturing of bedrock formations by a pressurized liquid. The process involves the high-pressure injection of "fracking fluid" primarily water, containing sand or other proppants suspended with the aid of thickening agents into a wellbore to create cracks in the deep-rock formations through which natural gas , petroleum , and brine will flow more freely. When the hydraulic pressure is removed from the well, small grains of hydraulic fracturing proppants either sand or aluminium oxide hold the fractures open. Hydraulic fracturing began as an experiment in , and the first commercially successful application followed in As of , 2. Hydraulic fracturing is highly controversial.

Laffin, Michael, and Michael Kariya. Shale gas has emerged as a potentially significant source of new and accessible natural gas reserves. Significant gas shale prospects have been found in a number of jurisdictions including North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Background: The United States has experienced a boom in natural gas production due to recent technological innovations that have enabled this resource to be produced from shale formations. Objectives: We reviewed the body of evidence related to exposure pathways in order to evaluate the potential environmental public health impacts of shale gas development. We highlight what is currently known and identify data gaps and research limitations by addressing matters of toxicity, exposure pathways, air quality, and water quality. Discussion: There is evidence of potential environmental public health risks associated with shale gas development.
An oil and gas extraction technique called hydraulic fracturing has been common in the United States for many decades. This article uses the United States as a case study of the benefits and risks of fracturing and the legal frameworks that apply to this practice, exploring how the legal approach has been largely piecemeal and reactive. US states have been the primary regulatory bodies responsible for controlling risks, and their regulations vary substantially. The federal government also has regulated in limited areas, however—again in a largely reactive and patchwork manner. Conventional, easy-to-access petroleum resources have become scarcer over time, and industry has developed a range of technological solutions to produce unconventional petroleum resources—resources that are more broadly dispersed and exist at lower densities than conventional sources. These resources are difficult to access because of their dispersed nature and because they tend to be tightly trapped within underground rock formations.
Мидж задумалась. До нее тоже доходили подобные слухи. Так, может быть, она зря поднимает панику. - Мидж. - Джабба засопел и сделал изрядный глоток. - Если бы в игрушке Стратмора завелся вирус, он бы сразу мне позвонил.

Сьюзан тихо вскрикнула: по-видимому, отключение электричества стерло электронный код. Она опять оказалась в ловушке. Внезапно сзади ее обхватили и крепко сжали чьи-то руки. Их прикосновение было знакомым, но вызывало отвращение.
Этот его секрет в действительности не был никакой тайной, он просто подписывал свои письма словом Искренне. Почему-то ему казалось, что этот филологический ребус Сьюзан не обрадует. - Хочу тебя обрадовать. Когда я летел домой, - сказал он, желая переменить тему, - я позвонил президенту университета. Сьюзан радостно встрепенулась.
Не знаете, как его зовут. Клушар на мгновение задумался и покачал головой: - Понятия не имею. - Он поморщился от боли и откинулся на подушки. Беккер вздохнул.
