Venting and Leaking of Methane from Shale Gas Development: Response to Cathles et al. Robert W. Howarth

English English
In April 2011, we published the first comprehensive analysis of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from shale gas obtained by hydraulic fracturing, with a focus on methane emissions. Our analysis was challenged by Cathles et al. (2012). Here, we respond to those criticisms. We stand by our approach and findings. ...

Eagle Ford Shale - Oil and Natural Gas
English English
What is the Eagle Ford Shale? The Eagle Ford Shale is a black calcareous shale with a high organic carbon content that outcrops in a northeast-southwest trending band through central Texas. It is named after the town of Eagle Ford, Texas. In 2009 and 2010 the Eagle Ford Shale began receiving a lot of media attention because landmen were out leasing mineral rights, drilling companies were applying for large numbers of permits, and oil and gas production was rising rapidly...

Fayetteville Shale: Map, News, Video
English English
Fayetteville Shale Orientation: The Fayetteville Shale, is a black, organic-rich rock of Mississippian age that underlies much of northern Arkansas and adjacent states. It produces natural gas in the central portion of the Arkoma basin. The productive wells penetrate the Fayetteville Shale at depths between a few hundred and 7000 feet below the surface and at elevations of between a few hundred feet above sea level and 7000 feet below sea level...

Haynesville Shale: News, Map, Videos, Lease and Royalty Information
English English
Haynesville Shale Orientation: The Haynesville Shale, is a black, organic-rich shale of Upper Jurassic age that underlies much of the Gulf Coast area of the United States. 'Haynesville Shale' is a drillers term for shale rock units within the Haynesville Formation. The Haynesville Formation is underlain by the Smackover Formation and overlain by rocks of the Cotton Valley Group. It was deposited about 150 million years ago in a shallow offshore environment...

Marcellus Shale - Appalachian Basin Natural Gas Play
English English
Super Giant Field in the Appalachians? A few years ago every geologist involved in Appalachian Basin oil and gas knew about the Devonian black shale called the Marcellus. Its black color made it easy to spot in the field and its slightly radioactive signature made it a very easy pick on a geophysical well log. However, very few of these geologists were excited about the Marcellus Shale as a major source of natural gas. Wells drilled through it produced some gas but rarely in enormous quantity. Few if any in the natural gas industry suspected that the Marcellus might soon be a major contributor to the natural gas supply of the United States - large enough to be spoken of as a 'super giant' gas field...

Natural Gas Royalty Estimate
English English
How much should you be paid for your gas? This calculator can be used to produce an estimate of your expected monthy income from a natural gas well, assuming that you can at least guess at the average well yield in millions of cubic feet per day. Keep in mind that this is merely an estimate and you could be paid a lot more money or a lot less. Also, this calculator estimates income for natural gas but some wells have additional income from oil, natural gas liquids or other commodities that are not included in this royalty estimate...

Why Are My Royalty Payments Getting Smaller?
English English
Declining Royalty Payments are Normal Lots of property owners who signed a lease in one of the natural gas shale plays such as the Marcellus, Barnett, Haynesville, Fayetteville, Bakken, Utica and Eagle Ford are now receiving monthly or quarterly royalty payments. Many of these people were pleasantly surprised with the amount paid in their first monthly check but then they were shocked when the amounts of subsequent payments rapidly declined .- even when the price of natural gas was holding steady...

The Natural Gas Forums
English English
About The Natural Gas Forum For Landowners It was a normal, everyday evening in the fall of 2007. My wife and I had just finished a quiet dinner and were relaxing when a knock at the door announced the arrival of what would soon be called 'The Gasicane'. Now, we had been contacted over the past 30 years to lease for minerals and gas, but this time was different. Instead of the usual $10 or $15 an acre offer, the landman was offering $500 an acre. That set up some red flags, because in order for offers to jump that much, he had to know something that we did not. Worse yet, I really couldn't find anything on the web to help us to understand what was going on...

HP/HT Challenges

English English
Once again, recent SPE papers reflect technical advances made in high-pressure/high-temperature (HP/HT) drilling and production. Over the years there has been, not just an increased number of papers, but an increase in subject areas. This activity demonstrates steady expansion in developing HP/HT reservoirs and the increasing importance to hydrocarbon supply. This diversity of technical areas and geographical distribution makes it impossible to provide examples of all technical and operational matters with just three highlighted papers...

Emissions from Natural Gas Production in the Barnett Shale Area and Opportunities for Cost-Effective Improvements

English English
Natural gas production in the Barnett Shale region of Texas has increased rapidly since 1999, and as of June 2008, over 7700 oil and gas wells had been installed and another 4700 wells were pending. Gas production in 2007 was approximately 923 Bcf from wells in 21 counties. Natural gas is a critical feedstock to many chemical production processes, and it has many environmental benefits over coal as a fuel for electricity generation, including lower emissions of sulfur, metal compounds, and carbon dioxide.

Summary of the products and chemicals used to drill the Crosby 25-3 well

English English
INTRODUCTION The following summaries are based on the possible health effects of the products and chemicals used in drilling a natural gas well, Crosby 25-3, northwest of Clark, Park County, Wyoming. This well was directionally drilled with a total vertical depth of 8,038 feet. Natural gas, petroleum condensate, and drilling fluids were accidentally released from the ground adjacent to the well due to a breach in the surface casing at approximately 255 feet below ground surface.

Modern Shale Gas Development in the United States: A Primer (2009)

English English
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Natural gas production from hydrocarbon rich shale formations, known as “shale gas,” is one of the most rapidly expanding trends in onshore domestic oil and gas exploration and production today. In some areas, this has included bringing drilling and production to regions of the country that have seen little or no activity in the past. New oil and gas developments bring change to the environmental and socio-economic landscape, particularly in those areas where gas development is a new activity. With these changes have come questions about the nature of shale gas development, the potential environmental impacts, and the ability of the current regulatory structure to deal with this development...

Water Facts #28: Gas Well Drilling and Your Private Water Supply

English English
Gas well drilling has occurred for decades in much of western and northern Pennsylvania with tens of thousands of active gas wells in the state and over 5,000 new wells drilled each year. Most of these wells tap gas reserves a few thousand feet below the earth’s surface. With discoveries of new gas reserves in the Marcellus shale and new drilling technologies to reach previously untapped gas reserves, both the number and depth of gas wells are expected to rise dramatically over the next several decades.

Well Design and Well Integrit

English English
To successfully inject CO2 into the subsurface to mitigate green house gases in the atmosphere, the CO2 must to be trapped in the subsurface and not be allowed to leak to the surface or to potable water sources above the injection horizon. Potential leakage can occur through several different mechanisms, including natural occurrences or along wells. To avoid leakage from injection wells, the integrity of the wells must be maintained during the injection period and for as long as free CO2 exists in the injection horizon. In addition to injection wells, monitoring wells will most likely be required to observe the plume movement and possible leakage.

Addressing the Environmental Risks from Shale Gas Development

English English
I. Executive Summary The rapid development of shale gas resources in the past few years has already dramatically affected U.S. energy markets—lowering energy prices and carbon dioxide emissions—and could offer an affordable source of low-carbon energy to reduce dependence on coal and oil.1 However, the development of shale gas has been linked to a range of local environmental problems, generating a public backlash that threatens to bring production to a halt in some regions. While hydraulic fracturing in particular has been the focus of much controversy, our analysis indicates that the most significant environmental risks associated with the development of shale gas are similar to those associated with conventional onshore gas, ...

But because the same technology poses threats to water, accelerating this natural gas drilling could be our next energy disaster

We evaluate the greenhouse gas footprint of natural gas obtained by highvolume hydraulic fracturing from shale formations, focusing on methane emissions. Natural gas is composed largely of methane, and 3.6% to 7.9% of the methane from shale-gas production escapes to the atmosphere in venting and leaks over the lifetime of a well. These methane emissions are at least 30% more than and perhaps more than twice as great as those from conventional gas...

Hydraulic Fracturing - History of an enduring technology

English English   PRO FRACK!
Since Stanolind Oil introduced hydraulic fracturing in 1949, close to 2.5 million fracture treatments have been performed worldwide. Some believe that approximately 60% of all wells drilled today are fractured. Fracture stimulation not only increases the production rate, but it is credited with adding to reserves—9 billion bbl of oil and more than 700 Tscf of gas added since 1949 to US reserves alone—which otherwise would have been uneconomical to develop.

Draft Plan to Study the Potential Impacts of Hydraulic Fracturing on Drinking Water Resource

English English
As natural gas production has increased, so have concerns about the potential environmental and human health impacts of hydraulic fracturing in the United States. Hydraulic fracturing, which involves the pressurized injection of water, chemical additives, and proppants into a geologic formation, induces fractures in the formation that stimulate the flow of natural gas or oil, thus increasing the volume of gas or oil that can be recovered from coalbeds, shales, and tight sands—the so-called “unconventional” reservoirs.

Methane and the greenhouse-gas footprint of natural gas from shale formation

English English
Abstract: We evaluate the greenhouse gas footprint of natural gas obtained by highvolume hydraulic fracturing from shale formations, focusing on methane emissions. Natural gas is composed largely of methane, and 3.6% to 7.9% of the methane from shale-gas production escapes to the atmosphere in venting and leaks over the lifetime of a well. These methane emissions are at least 30% more than and perhaps more than twice as great as those from conventional gas. The higher emissions from shale gas occur at the time wells are hydraulically fractured—as methane escapes from flow-back return fluids—and during drill out following the fracturing.

A Case History of Tracking Water Movement Through Fracture Systems in the Barnet Shale

English English
Staged fracturing has been successfully carried out in the Barnett Shale for the past several years. Over the course of these years diagnostic work has been performed to assess the geometry of the complex network of fractures created during the pumping process. One of the tools used to “measure” the parameters of fracture azimuth, length, height and width of what has been termed as stimulated reservoir volume (SRV) is micro-seismic detection. The observed SRV coverage has proved very useful for predicting potential areas of communication between wells with increased density spacing. ...

Methane Gas & Groundwater 

English English
What is Methane Gas?   Methane is the largest component of natural gas.  In its natural form, methane gas is colorless, odorless, and tasteless. One natural source of methane is the decomposition of plant and animal waste. Methane gas may enter groundwater through natural or industrial processes. Other sources of methane gas include coal mines, wastewater treatment, landfills, natural gas and petroleum systems, and certain agricultural and industrial processes. Before being used as a fuel, methane gas is mixed with an odorant, as a safety measure to help detect leaks.

Natural Gas Drilling in the Marcellus Shale - Potential Impacts on the Tourism Economy of the Southern Tier

English English
The Marcellus Shale is a geologic formation that lies under large portions of New York, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia, and smaller parts of Ohio and Virginia. Contained within the Shale formation are reserves of natural gas, which have only recently become recoverable due to a process known as horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”). While estimates of the total untapped gas reserves vary widely, it is generally agreed that they are significant I as many as 500 trillion cubic feet of gas might be recovered from the formation, enough natural gas to meet the domestic needs of the United States for over 20 years (Engelder 2009).

The Case for a Ban on Gas Fracking

English English
Billionaire oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens has invested millions of dollars in natural gas, which he promotes as a promising “bridge fuel” that could help the United States transition from dirty fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy. This idea has gained traction as new drilling methods using hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” appear able to extract gas from rock sources that were previously uneconomical to access — especially shale. Shale gas has become one of the “hottest investments in the energy sector.”

Lifecycle Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Shale Gas Compared to Coal: An Analysis of Two Conflicting Studies

English English
Abstract Two studies with conflicting conclusions have recently been produced on full-cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from shale gas production, one from scientists at Cornell University and another from a scientist at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). The Cornell study, published in a peer-reviewed journal, suggests that lifecycle GHG emissions from shale gas are 20%-100% higher than coal on a 20-year timeframe basis, especially considering that 70% of natural gas consumption is not used for electricity generation.

Examination of Possibly Induced Seismicity from Hydraulic Fracturing in the Eola Field, Garvin County, Oklahoma

English English
On January 18,2011, The Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS) received a phone call from a resident living south of Elmore City, in Garvin County, Oklahoma, that reported feeling several earthquakes throughout the night. The reporting local resident had also offered that there was an active hydraulic fracturing project occurring nearby. Upon examination there were nearly 50 earthquakes, which occurred during that time. After analyzing the data there were 43 earthquakes large enough to be located, which from the character of the seismic recordings indicate that they are both shallow and unique....

Hydraulic Fraturing in Atlantic Canada

When an activity raises threats of harm to human health or the environment, precautionary measures should be taken even if some cause and effect relationships are not fully established scientifically. In this context the proponent of an activity, rather than the public, should bear the burden of proof. The process of applying the Precautionary Principle must be open, informed, democratic and must include potentially affected parties. It must also involve an examination of the full range of alternatives, including non action.

Coal to gas: the influence of methane leakage

English English
Abstract Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fossil fuel combustion may be reduced by using natural gas rather than coal to produce energy. Gas produces approximately half the amount of CO2 per unit of primary energy compared with coal. Here we consider a scenario where a fraction of coal usage is replaced by natural gas (i.e., methane, CH4 ) over a given time period, and where a percentage of the gas production is assumed to leak into the atmosphere. The additional CH4 from leakage adds to the radiative forcing of the climate system, offsetting the reduction in CO2 forcing that accompanies the transition from coal to gas.

Deep drilling, deep pockets in congress

English English
A faction of the natural gas industry has invested more than $747 million as part of a 10-year lobbying and political spending campaign to persuade federal authorities to ignore the dangers of hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” a rapidly expanding but poorly regulated method of tapping gas reserves. Fracking involves injecting a mix of sand, chemicals, and water into a well at high pressure in order to break up underground rock formations and free up natural gas. Pollution may occur underground, with fracking chemicals or methane directly contaminating aquifers and drinking wells, or above ground, as streams or tributaries are polluted by spills or improper wastewater disposal...

The New York Department of Environmental Conservation has released a draft environmental impact statement that will help set standards in New York for gas drilling in the state’s Marcellus Shale deposits. Environmental Working Group’s analysis concludes that the New York State government is not prepared to protect drinking water supplies from drilling pollution. At the same time, state officials concede that permitting the inherently risky process, a combination of horizontal drilling and highvolume hydraulic fracturing, would not create many jobs for local residents.

Water’s Journey Through the Shale Gas Drilling and Production Processes in the Mid Atlantic Region

English English
Introduction Water is a critical ingredient for extracting gas from the Marcellus shale, which lies up to 9,000 feet underground beneath southern New York, northern and western Pennsylvania, the eastern half of Ohio, and most of West Virginia. In the Mid-Atlantic region the shale around most new gas wells has to be hydraulically fractured to release the trapped gas so that it can be brought to the surface.

Venting and leaking of methane from shale gas development: response to Cathles et al.

English English
Abstract In April 2011, we published the first comprehensive analysis of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from shale gas obtained by hydraulic fracturing, with a focus on methane emissions. Our analysis was challenged by Cathles et al. (2012). Here, we respond to those criticisms. We stand by our approach and findings. The latest EPA estimate for methane emissions from shale gas falls within the range of our estimates but not those of Cathles et al. which are substantially lower.

The latest EPA estimate for methane emissions from shale gas falls within the range of our estimates but not those of Cathles et al. which are substantially lower. Cathles et al. believe the focus should be just on electricity generation, and the global warming potential of methane should be considered only on a 100-year time scale.

Radon in Natural Gas from Marcellus Shale By Marvin Resnikoff, Radioactive Waste Management Associates

English English
A significant public health hazard associated with drilling for natural gas in the Marcellus Shale formation must be seriously investigated by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). This hazard is from radioactive radon gas and the potential for large numbers of lung cancer among natural gas customers. This issue, which has been ignored in the DEC’s Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement, must be addressed in a revised Impact Statement and before DEC issues any drilling permits.

Venting and Leaking of Methane from Shale Gas Development: Response to Cathles et al.

English English
To compare methane emissions from various studies in Table 1 of our accompanying paper, we normalized the emissions to the heat content of gas expressed as the Lower Heating Value (LHV). LHV is the standard internationally, but many recent papers instead used the higher heating value (HHV), a common convention in the U.S. For the LHV convention, the mass of methane per energy is 15 g C of methane per MJ (Hayhoe et al. 2002), corresponding to 0.028 m3 MJ-1 of natural gas under standard conditions. ...

Geochemical evidence for possible natural migration of Marcellus Formation brine to shallow aquifers in Pennsylvania

English English
The debate surrounding the safety of shale gas development in the Appalachian Basin has generated increased awareness of drinking water quality in rural communities. Concerns include the potential for migration of stray gas, metal-rich formation brines, and hydraulic fracturing and/or flowback fluids to drinking water aquifers. A critical question common to these environmental risks is the hydraulic connectivity between the shale gas formations and the overlying shallow drinking water aquifers.

What Next for the Oil and Gas Industry?

English English
The oil and gas industry is under pressures that will transform it. The effect of other industries on oil demand, the increasing opportunities for non-conventional oil and gas that offset perceptions of limits to conventional resources, and the shift of growth to Asia will all compel the industry to look for growth in value rather than volume, to distinguish between the expanding markets of developing countries and the declining markets of the private sector in developed countries, and to target technologies to a diversity of resource opportunities outside the state sector and to specialized partnerships within it.
