Fluid Migration Mechanisms due to Faulty Well Design and/or Construction: An Overview and Recent Experiences in the Pennsylvania Marcellus Play

Fluid Migration Mechanisms due to Faulty Well Design and/or Construction: An Overview and Recent Experiences in the Pennsylvania Marcellus Play

Author(s):

Date:

Key findings:

  • Evidence linking water contamination to fracking-related activities has increased.
  • The disposal of fracking wastewater has been causally linked to earthquakes.
  • Air quality impacts from fracking-related activities are clearer than ever. They include the release of pollutants such as ozone, benzene, and silica dust that are linked to costly, disabling health problems.
  • The economic benefits of the fracking boom have been challenged as being over-hyped and
    short-lived.
