About this event

Speaker: Dr Majid Sedighi
The application of horizontal drilling along with hydraulic fracturing has greatly increased the ability to exploit natural gas from deep and low permeability shale formations. However, the geoenvironmental uncertainties have increasingly generated public concerns.
This talk aims to provide an update and up-to-date review on the geoenvironmental aspects of shale gas exploitation. An overview of shale gas evolution, world-wide resources and potentials will be provided.
A discussion on the process of gas extraction through the application of combined horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing will be provided. The presentation focus will be on the environmental concerns in relation to the application of such unconventional geoenergy technologies.
Aspects related to the i) methane emission, ii) water and waste water, iii) groundwater contamination, iv) induced seismicity and v) landscape destruction will be addressed.
