EFD to Host Advanced Analytical Methods for Air and Stray Gas Emissions and Produced Brine Characterization Workshop July 10
Environmentally Friendly Drilling will host Advanced Analytical Methods for Air and Stray Gas Emissions and Produced Brine Characterization Workshop at Houston Advanced Research Center - Lone Star Campus Center in the Board Room on Thursday, July 10, 2014. EFD is led by Rich Haut, Program Director, Energy Production and the Environmentally Friendly Drilling Systems.
The Stray Gas Impacts and Baseline Sampling Project is identifying sources of variability in pre-drill (baseline) groundwater data and quantifying their impact on dissolved gas concentrations and other water quality parameters from a series of private residential water supply wells in northeast Pennsylvania, an area of active Marcellus shale gas extraction. The goal is to form a better understanding of the inherent variability in pre-drill and post-drill analytical results and develop recommendations for improved sample collection methods and data interpretation. The workshop will review the results to date and then identify the tasks that need to be performed in order to document standardized protocols for stray gas, air emissions and water measurements.
