The compatibility of UK onshore petroleum with meeting the UK’s carbon budgets

The Committee’s report ‘The compatibility of UK onshore petroleum with meeting the UK’s carbon budgets’ is the result of a new duty under the Infrastructure Act 2015. This duty requires the CCC to advise the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change about the implications of exploitation of onshore petroleum, including shale gas, for …

Characterizing Air Emissions from Natural Gas Drilling and Well Completion Operations in Garfield County, Colorado

This public and industry sponsored field study by Jeff Collett and colleagues, Colorado State University (CSU), is the first in class to quantify emissions of chemical compounds (air toxics, ozone precursors, and methane) during new well development and to characterize how these compounds are dispersed in the atmosphere downwind of the site. The study was …
