The senate last week heard the debate on Natural Gas drilling.
Deputy Administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency Bob Perciasepe testified at a hearing on two upcoming studies indicating that drilling for natural gas in U.S. may not be as safe or environmentally conscious.
Senate Committee Environment and Public Works | Water and Wildlife.
The most important thing I took out of the debate that I got a chance to watch this week was the new up and running site www.FrackFocus.org
The hydraulic fracturing chemical registry website. This website is a joint project of the Ground Water Protection Council and the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission.
On this site you can search for information about the chemicals used in the hydraulic fracturing of oil and gas wells. You will also find educational materials designed to help you put this information in perspective.
A thank you should go out to the creator of Gasland the movie the movie was brought up and sourced during the debate which had to be a great feeling for them.
I dont know of any large shale that will cause any companies to want to drill in my area of northwest Florida but this is an issue that concerns everyone as this can get into the water of adjoining states and cause major problems to health and well being of many people. The Marcellus Shale effects many states.My question would be what effect does bad wells have on land that ends up being contaminated.
The Marcellus Formation (also classified as the Marcellus Subgroup of the Hamilton Group, Marcellus Member of the Romney Formation, or simply the Marcellus Shale) is a unit of marine sedimentary rock found in eastern North America. Named for a distinctive outcrop near the village of Marcellus, New York in the United States, it extends throughout much of the Appalachian Basin. The shale contains largely untapped natural gas reserves, and its proximity to the high-demand markets along the East Coast of the United States makes it an attractive target for energy development.
