  • ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS IN GAS PRODUCTION MONITORED BY NETL


    Eric Smistad

    Only a few years ago, the price of natural gas was increasing rapidly, and many people were struggling to heat their homes. Since then, the price of natural gas has fallen, due to increased production from two non-traditional sources: coal beds and organic shales. Yet, effective production from unconventional gas resources requires well drilling and completion technologies that are too new for their environmental footprint to be well-established. The National Energy Technology Library (NETL) is conducting research to accurately assesses the impact of unconventional gas development on ecosystems, where gas plays are located, to provide impartial, scientific information. NETL is also actively developing cost-effective technologies and management strategies that aim to mitigate identified environmental impacts.
