Adequacy of Current State Setbacks for Directional HVHF

Adequacy of Current State Setbacks for Directional High-Volume Hydraulic Fracturing in the Marcellus, Barnett, and Niobrara Shale Plays Authors: Marsha Haley, Michael McCawley, Anne C. Epstein, Bob Arrington, and Elizabeth Ferrell Bjerke Abstract Background: There is an increasing awareness of the multiple potential pathways leading to human health risks from hydraulic fracturing. Setback distances are …

Planning for Fracking on the Barnett Shale: Urban Air Pollution, Improving Health Bases Regulation, and the Role of Local Governments

In the last decade hydraulic fracturing for natural gas has exploded on the Barnett Shale in Texas. Local governments in Texas, however, do not currently have the regulatory authority, capacity, or the information required to close the regulatory gap. Furthermore, government bodies in charge analysed data in an inappropriate way to claim there was no …

Study assesses shale decline rate

Major finding: Obviously, the productivity of fracked wells declines within few months to or even below pre-fracking levels. Bibliography: Jason Baihly, Raphael Altman, Raj Malpani, and Fang Luo (all Schlumberger staff) Study Assesses Shale Decline Rates The American Oil & Gas Reporter, May 2011 See also: Dramatic Decline Rates of 4 Gas Fields Confirmed by …
