I know of no specific evidence.  I do know that a proper cement and casing design, combined with the fact the hydrocarbons are >1 mile below the water table, is the best defense against the issues of contaminated water.  As with any design or construction project, if one cuts corners or does not have a firm grasp on the principles, contamination can occur.  There is also the issue of surface contamination, as the amounts of product become very large for some wells.  To me, informed oversight and regulation would be the way to go, al a house inspections during building.


The bigger issue with shale gas is the water used to perform the treatments.  Many companies are working and coming out with systems to treat and recover the produced water (either injected or naturally occuring salt water from the formation) as it flows from the well with the intention of reusing for the next set of wells.  Once the cost of these systems are brought down to a lower level, and the inevitable increase in the cost of fresh water (hauling, permits, and the like) occurs, we will reduce the water use for these treatments, but not eliminate it.  I assume some really smart people are looking at using either less water in general, or some other means of propelling the required "sand" into the formation to produce the gas.

You can appreciate that I have to be careful when replying to something like this.  Do you have any specific questions, or are you just looking for a general overview of the practice?

Building an EE lab

Posted on August 12, 2011 at 11:00am 8 Comments

In addition to editing the EE material for Design World we are building up a lab for tear-downs, testing, modifications, and light fabrication. We just received the ESD friendly DIY workbench from McMaster, next I will likely order some Flukes and hand tools to keep in the office. Anyone have any favorites to recommend? I've put together a rough equipment…


The Electrical Engineering Editor at Design World

My name is Joe Gorse, I am the Electrical Engineering Editor for Design World. I come from a contract R&D background so bare with me while I learn how to do all the things I was never allowed to do as an engineer with billable hours. =)

For the morbidly curious, here's a short video introduction and my …
