The Future For Fracking

by Biolargo, Inc.  (Apr. 10, 2014)

Summary Fracking is an essential technology to meet growing global demand for oil and gas. Fracking has become the "F" word, because it is very water-intensive, and has potential negative impacts on the environment. The future of fracking will be constrained if adequate water is not available and if solutions for decontaminating wastewaters are ...

A shale gas revolution?

by MIT - Massachusetts Institute of Technology  (Jan. 3, 2012)

MIT report shows prosperous shale gas market could hurt future R&D, if we let it. By Vicki Ekstrom, Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, MIT Shale gas - a resource that has grown significantly in just the last few years to one-quarter of the domestic gas supply - is cheaper and involves fewer emissions than ...

Halliburton hunts new bacteria killer to protect Shale-gas boom

by Biolargo, Inc.  (Mar. 29, 2010)

Halliburton Co. and Schlumberger Ltd., trying to forestall a regulatory crackdown that would cut natural-gas drilling, are developing ways to eliminate the need for chemicals that may taint water supplies near wells. At risk is hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, a process that unlocked gas deposits in shale formations and drove gains in U.S. ...
