  • Hydraulic fracturing consumes the largest share of water in shale gas production

    An average shale gas well in the Marcellus formation will use around 20 000 m3 of freshwater over its life cycle, new research suggests. In total, 65% of this is directly consumed at the well site and 35% is consumed further along the supply chain The extent of shale gas developments is expected to increase across the globe in the coming decades. In the US alone, the shale share of dry gas ...

  • Leaky wells, not fracking, taint water

    The drilling procedure called fracking didn't cause much-publicized cases of tainted groundwater in areas of Pennsylvania and Texas, a new study finds. Instead, it blames the contamination on problems in pipes and seals in natural gas wells. After looking at dozens of cases of suspected contamination, the scientists focused on eight hydraulically fractured wells in those states, where they ...
