Title: D18-D19 Workshop on Water Quality Monitoring and Environmental Characterization Related to Hydraulic Fracturing Activities
Dates: Wednesday January 28 2015
Location: Sheraton New Orleans; New Orleans, LA
Event Name: January 2015 Committee Week
ASTM Subcommittees D18.26 on Hydraulic Fracturing and D19.09 on Water — Hydraulic Fracturing Fluids cordially invite abstracts to be considered for presentation at a Workshop on Water Quality Monitoring and Environmental Characterization Related to Hydraulic Fracturing Activities which will be held from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm on January 28, 2015 during the ASTM 2015 Committee Week at the Sheraton New Orleans in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Objective and Topic Areas
Hydraulic Fracturing is a process often used to enhance hydrocarbon extraction from shale formations. During this process, a water solution containing proppant and chemicals is injected into the formation to open existing fractures or create new fractures. These fractures increase the effective surface area in contact with the formation and improve the rate of hydrocarbon extraction. The importance of conducting this process both safely and effectively has led to increased attention to methods, technologies, and approaches for monitoring, characterizing, mitigating, and preventing potential impacts associated with surface and subsurface hydraulic fracturing activities.
This workshop will educate the audience with insights and presentations from industry leaders regarding technology and methods to ensure environmental protection and risk assessment.
The workshop will focus on technologies and best practices for conducting site characterizations and monitoring related to hydraulic fracturing. Case studies related to the following topics are of particular interest.
Presentations will be limited to 20 minutes.
