Unconventional Shale Drilling: A Science/Technology, Health, Environmental, Economic and Policy Discussion
Featured Keynote Speaker: Deborah Rogers, Energy Policy Forum - “Shale and Wall Street: Was the Decline in Natural Gas Prices Orchestrated?”
The conference will bring together a forum of diverse subject matter experts from academic, industry, government and private organizations to discuss and prioritize using a knowledge-based approach to the major issues facing local, state and national agencies, and private citizens.
Unconventional horizontal drilling technology still in its early development. Its rapid deployment throughout the shale plays in the United States, and hence its long-term environmental, health, social, and economic cost-to-benefit and Energy Return On Investment (EROI) ratios are yet to be quantified.
The meeting objectives are to present known information, identify what needs to be known, and ways to achieve objectives through a gap analysis. Outcomes will help define optimal strategies and milestones that can be used to craft a viable policy statement along with proposed research and development suggestions to advance a more fact-based and environmentally sustainable approach to promote the best-in-class technologies by government and industry in the United States.
