  • NGWA comments on proposed rescinding of oil and gas hydraulic fracturing rule

    NGWA provided comments on the proposed rescission of the Bureau of Land Management’s 2015 Oil and Gas: Hydraulic Fracturing on Federal and Indian Lands rule, which set standards for hydraulic fracturing on these lands. The main rationale for the rescission was that 32 states had, or have since, adopted standards protective of groundwater and the subsurface. The rule had not yet been ...

  • New Report On Unconventional Gas Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, And Forecast, 2012 - 2018

    Gas reservoirs are mainly classified into conventional or unconventional. An unconventional gas reservoir is one which is situated in rocks with low permeability, thereby making the gas inaccessible unlike in conventional gas deposits. The cost of finding, developing, and managing these resources is much higher than conventional resources. The main technologies used for drilling the UCG ...

  • 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 ...

  • New guidance issued on reducing methane in residential water wells

    The National Ground Water Association has issued a new best suggested practice (BSP) for dealing with methane gas in residential water well systems. Intended to give guidance to water well system professionals, Reduce and Mitigate Problematic Concentrations of Methane in Residential Water Well Systems may also be of value to well owners though professional assistance is strongly encouraged due to ...

  • The North American Market for Produced Water Treatment Equipment

    Until renewable, sustainable sources are fully developed, the demand for fossil fuels will continue to grow. According to the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) most recent World Energy Outlook, the production of conventional crude oil, the largest single component of the global oil supply, will remain at current levels before declining slightly, to 68 million barrels per day, by 2035. To ...


  • Fracking fuels water fights in nation`s dry spots

    The latest domestic energy boom is sweeping through some of the nation's driest pockets, drawing millions of gallons of water to unlock oil and gas reserves from beneath the Earth's surface. Hydraulic fracturing, or the drilling technique commonly known as fracking, has been used for decades to blast huge volumes of water, fine sand and chemicals into the ground to crack open valuable shale ...
