Water quality studied in areas of unconventional oil and gas development, including areas where hydraulic fracturing techniques are used, in the United States; 2012; FS; 2012-3049; Susong, David D.; Gallegos, Tanya J.; Oelsner, Gretchen P.

Summary

Domestic oil and gas production and clean water are critical for economic growth, public health, and national security of the United States. As domestic oil and gas production increases in new areas and old fields are enhanced, there is increasing public concern about the effects of energy production on surface-water and groundwater quality. To a great extent, this concern arises from the improved hydraulic fracturing techniques being used today, including horizontal drilling, for producing unconventional oil and gas in low-permeability formations. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) John Wesley Powell Center for Analysis and Synthesis is hosting an interdisciplinary working group of USGS scientists to conduct a temporal and spatial [...]
