Environmentally Responsible Energy Production Committee

Purpose:

The mission of the Hydraulic Fracturing Technical Committee is to develop and disseminate knowledge about hydraulic fracturing through informed technical understanding and to provide solutions to reduce risks to environmental and water resources and mitigate potential impacts. The technical committee also seeks to address challenging issues facing hydraulic fracturing such as managing and treating injection fluids; environmental sustainability; impacts on air, land, and water resources (surface water and groundwater); water supply and demand; anthroprogenic induced earthquakes; understanding fracturing processes; and application of modern computational methods to determine potential hydraulic fluid pathways in subsurface. A broader scope of the committee will also encompass current and future policies affecting hydraulic fracturing and facilitate effective outreach and education to the public and professional communities.
