  • Shale gas: independent planning is key to reducing environmental impacts of fracking

    Funding for scientists, planners and inspectors should be available before any shale gas development begins, a new review recommends. As revenue for such staff is often provided by the development itself, planning, which is vital to provide immediate environmental protection as well as monitoring long-term impacts, is neglected. The researchers also advocate the use of ‘adaptive ...

  • 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 ...
