Sustainable Shale Oil and Gas

A new volume in the" Emerging Issues in Analytical Chemistry "series, " ""Sustainable Shale Oil and Gas Production: Analytical, Biochemical, and Geochemical Methods" offers a detailed discussion of the operational details of production and environmental pitfalls of fracking, going beyond productivity improvement objectives to explore cutting-edge analytic techniques and provide a better understanding of the issues and possible solutions. The book spells out the objectives and current issues in this field, and describes in detail the use of currently available chemistry techniques to resolve them. Hydraulic fracturing is the key technology enabling the production of shale oil and gas, and analytical chemistry plays a prominent role in this field. It is central to the three tenets of sustainable production: to be profitable, to protect the environment, and to protect the health of local communities. Each objective is significantly enabled by the use of appropriate analytical chemistry, and in some cases the development of new techniques will be required. The" Emerging Issues in Analytical Chemistry "series is published in partnership with RTI International and edited by Brian F. Thomas.

Shale oil and gas have altered the energy landscape, possibly permanently. They burst upon the fossil energy scene with a suddenness that initially defied prediction. Even the political balance of the world has changed. But, with the methods employed, the vast majority of the oil and gas remains in the ground. At the same time, serious environmental impact issues have been raised. A new volume in the Emerging Issues in Analytical Chemistry series, Sustainable Shale Oil and Gas Production: Analytical,

A pharmacologist and a veterinarian pull back the curtain on the human and animal health effects of hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking” Across the country, fracking—the extraction of natural gas by hydraulic fracturing—is being touted as the nation’s answer to energy independence and a fix for a flagging economy. Drilling companies assure us that the process is safe, politicians push through drilling legislation without a serious public-health debate, and those who speak out are marginalized, their silence purchased

As the province of British Columbia seeks to rapidly develop an extensive natural gas industry, it faces a number of challenges. One of these is that of ensuring that development does not disproportionately impact some of the province's most marginalized communities: the First Nations on whose land extraction will take place. This is particularly crucial given that environmental problems are often caused by unjust and inequitable social conditions that must be rectified before sustainable development can be advanced.

Shale energy development is an issue of global importance. The number of reserves globally, and their potential economic return, have increased dramatically in the past decade. Questions abound, however, about the appropriate governance systems to manage the risks of unconventional oil and gas development and the ability for citizens to engage and participate in decisions regarding these systems. Stakeholder participation is essential for the social and political legitimacy of energy extraction and production, what the industry calls a 'social license'

There have been many books on the topic of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) over the last 100 years. They all, however, focus on how to recover more oil faster, taking a rather myopic approach. The solutions presented all work fantastically in theory and even in the laboratory, but each fails to produce results in the field with long-term success. The petroleum industry is almost resigned to the belief that for an EOR technique to be successful, it must be propped up
