On Water... Treating Flowback and Produced Water Part 1

A severe criticism leveled at industry (and me frankly) has been that the water resources used in hydraulic fracturing where not being treated and are difficult if not impossible to economically treat. In response to these criticisms I felt that it was important to lay out to the readers some of the issues related to frack water and the types of treatment that are NOW being used in the field. This is a voluminous subject so I will break it down into the constituent parts and take on each… Continue

What are people saying about the "American Power Act" whose sponsors include Senators John Kerry (D-MA) and Joseph Lieberman (I-CT)

T. Boone Pickens

“Senators Kerry and Lieberman are to be commended for a plan that recognizes the economic and national security threat of our ever-increasing dependence on foreign oil, particularly OPEC oil. Achieving energy security is not easy and I applaud their focus on a broad energy package that includes replacing foreign oil/diesel/gasoline with cleaner, abundant domestic natural gas in America’s heavy duty vehicle fleets. I look forward to working with them in the coming weeks to… Continue

The originally anticipated attendance of only 250 was a severe underestimation with the ever growing fervor surrounding the Marcellus Shale play.

The Water Red Herring

The Marcellus Shale play has clearly been a game changer, not just in America's energy situation but in a range of businesses that are directly involved in the geophysical, drilling, pipelining, transportation and their legions of suppliers. We assume (correctly) that this cast of professionals can take what was until a few years ago inexpensive pastureland and turn it into a functional gas well providing natural gas and revenue for years.
