Natural Gas WAter Issues...Learn Their Dirty Tricks...Attend This Workshop

So, you want to wage a concerned citizen/activist battle against the Natural Gas industry, and their environment destroying hydraulic fracking?  Want too take every step you can to keep them out of your community, out of your own back yards, want to keep your children from getting sick, even dying?  First, you have to know your enemy, how they work, how they operate, what tricks professionals are teaching them.  The best way to do that is by attending THEIR WORKSHOPS (webinars, or in person events) that discuss the BIG ISSUES, and no issue is bigger than water...our Clean Drinking Water, and their ability to FOUL IT UP.  

With these thoughts in mind, there is a particular workshop that is a must attend if you can find the money and means to attend at "The Shale Gas Symposim" being held Thursday May 19,2011.

This workshop demonstrates the real-world working solutions discovered in plays throughout North America. Issues to be explored will include:
  • Water management’s history
  • Water issues of key importance to the northeastern United States
  • Water elements specific to shale gas hydraulic fracturing
  • Options for water sources
  • Solutions to storage and logistics challenges
  • Best practices for fluids treatment
  • Innovations in reusing and recycling fluids
  • Disposal: Weighing the pros and cons of the permitted options
  • The regulatory environment for fluid issues


  • STAKEHOLDER CONCERNS about shale gas development
  • FLUID MANAGEMENT CHALLENGES facing your project
  • SHALE GAS POLICIES at the local, state, and federal levels
  • GAS MARKETS & INFRASTRUCTURE shaping the future of the shale gas revolution
  • BEST PRACTICES & OPERATING STRATEGIES to build your operation the right way, maximizing your productivity and minimizing your footprint
