Partnership of Field Research Related to Shale Gas Development

Applications Due: December 31, 2013

Department of Energy

NETL is actively seeking partnerships with operators to monitor environmental signals in order to develop: (1) independent datasets documenting environmental conditions from pre-development through production to provide the public with an unbiased perspective on the impacts of shale gas development; and

(2) the science and technology base for future strategies to ensure that adverse events can be avoided, or where not avoided, detected and appropriately mitigated.

Areas of Research include:

  • Fugitive Air Emissions and Greenhouse Gases
  • Produced Water Leak Detection
  • Subsurface Migration of Gas and Fluids
  • Evaluating Microseismic Activity and Ground Motion
