New applications of horizontal drilling techniques and hydraulic fracturing, in which water, sand, and chemical additives are injected under high pressure to create and maintain fractures in underground formations, allow oil and natural gas from shale formations to be developed. As exploration and development of shale oil and gas have increased, including in areas of the country without a history of oil and natural gas development, questions have been raised about the estimates of the size of these resources, as

"Technological improvements haveallowed the extraction of oil and naturalgas from onshore unconventionalreservoirs such as shale, tightsandstone, and coalbed methaneformations. Specifically, advances inhorizontal drilling techniques combinedwith hydraulic fracturing (pumpingwater, sand, and chemicals into wellsto fracture underground rockformations and allow oil or gas to flow)have increased domestic developmentof oil and natural gas from theseunconventional reservoirs. Theincrease in such development hasraised concerns about potentialenvironmental and public health effectsand whether existing federal and stateenvironmental and public healthrequirements are adequate.GAO was asked to

The United States has seen resurgence in petroleum production, mainly driven by technology improvements in unconventional oil and gas stimulation from shale formations. Hydraulic fracturing, one of the unconventional oil and gas stimulation technologies, has caught a lot of public attention that has led to more research on it and its impacts as well increased debate over more regulatory oversight. Other unconventional oil stimulation techniques have more or less been left out of the discussion. One of these less frequently

As with conventional oil and gas development, requirements from eight federal environmental and public health laws apply to unconventional oil and gas development. For example, the Clean Water Act (CWA) regulates discharges of pollutants into surface waters. Among other things, CWA requires oil and gas well site operators to obtain permits for discharges of produced water—which includes fluids used for hydraulic fracturing, as well as water that occurs naturally in oil- or gas-bearing formations—to surface waters. In addition,

This book examines the economics and related impacts of unconventional shale gas development. While focusing on the Marcellus and Utica Shales in the Mid-Atlantic region, additional insights from other regions are included to provide a broader view of these issues. Shale gas development in recent years has changed the energy discussion in the US, as existing reserves of natural gas coupled with horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing make exploitation of these reserves economically feasible. The importance of natural gas is

Over roughly the past decade, oil and gas production in the United States has surged dramatically—thanks largely to technological advances such as high-volume hydraulic fracturing, more commonly known as “fracking.” This rapid increase has generated widespread debate, with proponents touting economic and energy-security benefits and opponents highlighting the environmental and social risks of increased oil and gas production. Despite the heated debate, neither side has a monopoly on the facts. In this book, Daniel Raimi gives a balanced and
