Proceedings of the Shale Energy Engineering 2014 conference, held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, July 21-23, 2014. Sponsored by the Energy Division of ASCE.
ASCE-41365 - Shale Energy Engineering 2014 - Technical Challenges, Environmental Issues, and Public Policy presents technical challenges associated with shale oil and gas development from a civil and environmental engineering perspective.
Topics include: water resources and groundwater management and treatment; environmental issues in water disposal; geotechnical and geological aspects of shale oil and gas; hydraulic fracturing characterization and monitoring; environmental effects and practices in hydraulic fracturing; environmental regulations, risk management, and mitigation; public policy issues related to shale oil and gas; infrastructure development, roadway management, and site development; and pipeline detection, mapping, and monitoring.
These papers will be of interest to both researchers and practitioners in all areas of shale energy engineering.
