The shale oil and gas industry has experienced a technological boom within the last decade. New technology opens up new avenues for new gas development.
With these changes have come questions about the nature of unconventional oil and gas production and the ability of the current regulatory structure to protect public health and the environment.
Today, unconventional oil and gas recovery is accomplished within a solid framework of laws and regulations that have been developed over many decades. The ongoing challenge, however, is to effectively balance oil and natural gas development and regulations between the interests of citizens, the environment, and profits.
On the one hand, the shale oil and natural gas industry has a responsibility to its shareholders for increased profits through improved and established best practices and standards. On the other, government has a responsibility to protect its citizens and the planet through improved and established laws and regulations.
This webinar by Dr. Barry Stevens will provide insights into the way climate change in conjunction with environmental and public health concerns have triggered a regulatory response by national, state and local governments in the U.S.
Please note the presentation covers shale gas regulations and not those pertaining to conventional and other unconventional resources.
This conference is a must for senior and mid-level representatives from the unconventional gas industry including:
