This report describes a previously uncharacterized occupational health hazard: work crew exposures to respirable crystalline silica during hydraulic fracturing.
The American National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) identified exposure to airborne silica as a health hazard to workers conducting some hydraulic fracturing operations during recent field studies.
September 2010, A report by Craig Michaels, Watershed Program Director, James L. Simpson, Senior Attorney and William Wegner, Staff Scientist
On the 8th of December, as negotiators from around the world were working around the clock to reach agreement on a climate deal in Le Bourget, just 20 miles west from there, the administrative court of Cergy-Pontoise was hearing the arguments of Schuepbach over the abrogation of two permits in the wake of the anti-fracking law passed in 2011.
The terms used in oil and gas well exploration can be confusing to anyone not involved in the business. At worst, these terms can be used to mislead nonspecialists who are trying to learn about the potential consequences of the industry.
Homeowners, be aware! That fine print in your homeowner’s insurance policy could really matter if hydraulic fracturing damages your home sweet home. Fracking-related damage, insurance industry insiders say, is not covered under a standard homeowner’s insurance policy. Neither is damage caused by floods, earthquakes or earth movement, which insurers call exclusions.
Legal opinion prepared by the law firm Philippe & Partners - Brussels, 8 November 2011 for the Directorate-General for Energy in the European Commission and expresses the opinion of the organisation undertaking the study.
This report explores the environmental risks and climate change implications arising from shale gas extraction. It also outlines potential UK and global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the exploitation of shale reserves. A report by researchers at the Tyndall Centre University of Manchester
The authors evaluate the greenhouse gas footprint of natural gas obtained by high volume hydraulic fracturing from shale formations, focusing on methane emissions.
