Real-Time surrogate monitoring of Groundwater pollutants at Oil and Gas production sites
Using surrogates to monitor groundwater quality in real timeThe development of oil and gas resources, especially by hydraulic fracturing, has increased concerns about potential groundwater contamination (Figure 1).Typically, grab sample collection and expensive analytical tests are required to determine whether or not groundwater quality has been compromised.Time-consuming analytical methods may be expensive and difficult to perform. Site operators, stakeholders, regulatory agencies, and the public often need...
Fracking & Shale Gas
Unconventional natural gas production (shale gas) by hydraulic fracturing - Quantification of the Environmental FootprintDue to the global decline of fossil energy reserves and resources, unconventional natural gas production has become increasingly important in the last decade.In this context, unconventional natural gas production means the production of shale gas, tight gas and coal bed methane. A useful approach to determine the environmental footprint of unconventional gas production is Life Cycle Assessment...
Oklahoma Oil Industry Eyes Produced Water Reuse Strategies
As the scale of fracking increases, states and operators are rethinking produced water management Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a technique for stimulating production in an oil or gas well by injecting large quantities of pressurized fluid, which creates fissures. Each well is different, but according to StateImpact Pennsylvania, fracking requires an average of 4.4 million gallons of water per well — enough to fill more than six Olympic swimming pools. With persistent drought and water scarcity...
Five principles of uncertainty for modelers discussed in November-December issue of Groundwater
If you’re a member of the NGWA Scientists and Engineers Section, you will soon receive your copy of the November-December 2017 of Groundwater®, an issue brimming with a wide range of topics. In his Guest Editorial, Randall J. Hunt offers five principles of uncertainty for groundwater modelers. He argues that uncertainty must be presented in a way that is easy to understand. Admitting there are many things we do not know will improve acceptance of the things we do know. Kelvin Wong and Marirosa Molina...
´High-Resolution Characterization in Fractured Rock´
Ken Goldstein, CGWP moderated a session titled “High-Resolution Characterization in Fractured Rock” at the 2017 NGWA Conference on Fractured Rock and Groundwater, October 2-3 in Burlington, Vermont. Goldstein is senior vice president, water and environmental systems at Louis Berger. He recently shared his insights with us on fractured rock characterization and what he is looking forward to learning at the conference. NGWA: How will this conference foster the development of new technologies in...
