Identifying chemicals of concern in hydraulic fracturing fluids used for oil production

Based on an analysis of quantities used, toxicity, and lack of adequate hazard evaluation, QACs, biocides, and corrosion inhibitors were identified as priority chemicals of concern that deserve further investigation. Abstract Chemical additives used for hydraulic fracturing and matrix acidizing of oil reservoirs were reviewed and priority chemicals of concern needing further environmental risk assessment, …

A new look at what’s in ‘fracking’ fluids raises red flags

A new look at what’s in ‘fracking’ fluids raises red flags Authors: William Stringfellow, Michael Bernstein, Katie Cottingham Date: Aug 14 Key findings: For about one-third of the approximately 190 compounds the scientists identified as ingredients in various fracking formulas, the scientists found very little information about toxicity and physical and chemical properties. Data gaps …

Physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of compounds used in hydraulic fracturing

Physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of compounds used in hydraulic fracturing. Authors: Stringfellow WT, Domen JK, Camarillo MK, Sandelin WL, Borglin S. Date: Jun 2014 Abstract: Hydraulic fracturing (HF), a method to enhance oil and gas production, has become increasingly common throughout the U.S. As such, it is important to characterize the chemicals found in …
