Description
 
Technological improvements have allowed the extraction of oil and natural gas from onshore unconventional reservoirs such as shale, tight sandstone, and coalbed methane formations. Specifically, advances in horizontal drilling techniques combined with hydraulic fracturing (pumping water, sand, and chemicals into wells to fracture underground rock formations and allow oil or gas to flow) have increased domestic development of oil and natural gas from these unconventional reservoirs. The increase in such development has raised concerns about potential environmental and public health effects and whether existing federal and state environmental and public health requirements are adequate. This report reviews environmental and public health requirements for unconventional oil and gas development and (1) describes federal requirements; (2) describes state requirements; (3) describes additional requirements that apply on federal lands; and (4) identifies challenges, if any, that federal and state agencies reported facing in regulating oil and gas development from unconventional reservoirs. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
