Hydraulic Fracturing: Facts, Frictions, and Trends -- BNA

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM ET

Already a hot topic, the friction over “fracking” is shaking up even more with recent quakes in Ohio and other areas. The “shale rush” trend, prompted by technology breakthroughs in horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing over the last decade, has raised questions about environmental and public health impacts. Water is a particular concern.

In this two-hour webinar, Ben Grumbles, president of Clean Water America Alliance, and former U.S. Environmental Protection Agency assistant administrator for water, will set context and moderate diverse perspectives from an expert panel including Mike Paque, executive director of Ground Water Protection Council; Richard Simmers, chief, Oil and Gas Resource Management Division, Ohio Department of Natural Resources; Mike Baker, chief, Drinking and Ground Water Divisions, Ohio Environmental Protection Agency; Stephanie Meadows, senior policy advisor for the American Petroleum Institute-Upstream; and Patrick O’Toole, president of the Family Farm Alliance.

Webinar objectives include:

•Identifying key facts, legal issues, and policy choices for hydraulic fracturing.

•Describing what states are doing across the country.

•Addressing recent events in Ohio with input from key state officials.

•Providing an industry perspective on hydraulic fracturing issues, opportunities, and actions to reduce environmental impacts.

•Sharing a western, agricultural perspective on concerns over water quantity and battles brewing over energy, water, and food.
