Newfield Exploration: Diligence Needed for STACK Water Plan
An advisor at Newfield Exploration takes a closer look at the company’s water management operations in the Oklahoma STACK, as well as the lessons learned in its development.
How Has the US Fracking Boom Affected Air Pollution in Shale Areas?
In recent years there has been a spike of research to determine what the extent of emissions are from fracked oil and gas wells. While much discussion has surrounded methane emissions, a greenhouse gas, less attention has been paid to air toxics.
Who's Minding the Methane? Federal Emissions Rules in Flux, States and Industry Take the Reins
Although a federal court temporarily thwarted EPA’s suspension of methane emissions regulations in early July, several states have formed an alliance to keep the ball rolling, and EPA’s most recent data show the industry has made significant strides in decreasing these emissions.
Bakken Sees Uptick in Hiring
