Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5ab6eb/environmental_and) has announced the addition of GlobalData's new report "Environmental and Public Health Concerns Might Hamper Shale Gas Production in the US" to their offering.
“Environmental and Public Health Concerns Might Hamper Shale Gas Production in the US”
The rapid development of shale gas resources in the past few years brought about a transition in the US natural gas market as well as lowering energy prices and carbon dioxide emissions. However, the development of shale gas has been considered as leading to a series of environmental problems. This has angered the public and the government who threaten to ban shale gas drilling or halt production in some regions. The most significant environmental risks associated with the development of shale gas include gas migration and groundwater contamination due to faulty well construction, blowouts, and above-ground leaks and spills of waste water and chemicals used during drilling and hydraulic fracturing.
Improved technologies and best practices can minimize the risks associated with shale gas development in the US. The natural gas players need to work closely with government agencies, environmental organizations, and local communities to develop technologies and practices that can mitigate the environmental risks and impacts associated with shale gas development. Effective government regulations are required in many states to provide adequate protection to the environment as shale gas development increases.
