What the Shale Gas Industry Should Have Learned From the Dimock Experience?

The specter of natural gas development impacting local groundwater first entered public consciousness with the events that occurred around Dimock, PA in 2008. Eight years later, as the final lawsuit is being resolved, various “versions” of the events of Dimock have entered into the international discourse on fracking.

But what actually happened in Dimock? What should the shale gas industry have learned from the Dimock experience? Why did the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection issue a consent order to the state’s largest natural gas developer in May 2015 with an 8.9 million dollar fine? What other groundwater pollution incidents have occurred with the development of Pennsylvania’s Marcellus resource?
This session by expert speaker Bruce Beaver will report on peer-reviewed publications and other publicly available documents detailing all of the events described above.

Session Highlights:

  • How did gas well operations impact some water wells in the Dimock area?
  • How is methane isotope speciation used to determine the source of natural gas in well water?
  •  How should past experiences inform the drilling industry about the best pre-drill well water analyses?
  • Are there any new analytical methods on the horizon that maybe useful for suspected groundwater contamination by gas well development when pre-drill groundwater isotope speciation data is not available?
