Oil and Gas: Information on Shale Resources, Development, and Environmental and Public Health Risks
Frank Rusco (au)
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 (known as äóģshale oiläó¯ and äóģshale gasäó¯) 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 well as the processes used to extract them. This report determines what is known about the (1) size of shale oil and gas resources and the amount produced from 2007 through 2011 and (2) environmental and public health risks associated with the development of shale oil and gas. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
