NORM in the East Midlands’ oil and gas producing region of the UK

The results of this study demonstrate clearly that NORM deposits from two UK sites, with significant radium activity, can form over a very short period of time. Although the production sites studied here are involved in conventional oil recovery, the findings have direct relevance should hydraulic fracturing for shale gas be pursued in the East …

Water Resources and Shale Gas/Oil Production in the Appalachian Basin – Critical Issues and Evolving Developments

This USGS-report depicts some of the critical issues that accompany shale oil and gas operations in the Appalachian region, e. g. the tremendous freshwater consumption: Only 10% of all HVHF water used is recovered from the drilled and fractured formation in northeastern Pennsylvania. Bibliography: William M. Kappel, John H. Williams, and Zoltan Szabo Water Resources …

Assessment of Effluent Contaminants from Three Facilities Discharging Marcellus Shale Wastewater to Surface Waters in Pennsylvania

Assessment of Effluent Contaminants from Three Facilities Discharging Marcellus Shale Wastewater to Surface Waters in Pennsylvania Author(s): Kyle Ferrar Date: 03.2013 Source / Publisher: American Chemical Society Key findings: Wastewater treatment plants can’t handle this water’s high levels of contaminants (including benzene and barium): Water flowing out of the plants into the environment still has …
