The Environmentally Friendly Drilling Systems (EFD) program (www.efdsystems.org) has been successful in identifying and developing technologies to reduce the environmental tradeoffs associated with the development of unconventional natural gas reserves. The objective is to identify, develop, and transfer critical, cost effective, new technologies that can provide policy makers and industry with the ability to develop US domestic reserves in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.
This forum’s objective is to focus on environmentally friendly technologies that are applicable in the Fayetteville Shale and other nearby developments. The meeting will also bring communities, government agencies, environmental groups, and oil and gas companies together to identify and discuss social, environmental, and technical issues related to natural gas drilling, completion, and production. In addition, the forum will inform stakeholders of research programs currently underway which address these issues.
Who Should Attend?
Service providers, researchers, environmental scientists, operating companies, engineering firms, research universities, and others that are interested in technology needed to ensure the development of unconventional natural gas reserves in a safe and environmentally sensitive manner.
