Analysis of Emissions from Natural Gas Production in the Barnett Shale

Barnett Shale Emissions Inventory (EI). The author’s assertions are based on incomparable data and exaggerate the relative significance of the emissions from the Barnett Shale with regard to ozone formation in the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) ozone nonattainment area.

  • For example, the...

A study on air emissions from Barnett Shale natural gas production activities was recently released by an engineering professor, Dr. Professor Al Armendariz at Southern Methodist University. Entitled “Emissions from Natural Gas Production in the Barnett Shale Area and Opportunities for Cost-Effective Improvements”, the study was commissioned by the Environmental Defense Fund, a New York City-...

The economic benefits of natural gas production in the Barnett Shale are now obvious to North Texans – tens of thousands of new jobs,

along with signing bonuses and monthly royalty checks to thousands of property owners who’ve leased their mineral rights. But another plus of natural gas production has yet to be appreciated, according to the Barnett Shale Energy Education...

Executive Summary

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...

On June 7, 2010, in Cleburne, TX, in a tragic accident, an electric transmission company worker punctured a natural gas pipeline leading to the death of the worker and injuring at least eight others.

In light of this terrible event, it is important to understand how each of us can keep our neighborhoods safe by protecting pipelines.

Recent public debate within the...

MYTH: Drilling rigs will be a permanent feature of the Fort Worth landscape.

FACT: It typically takes 20-30 days to drill a well in the Barnett Shale. However, depending on the area, multiple wells may be drilled consecutively on one site. When drilling is completed, the drilling rig is removed.

The Barnett Shale is generating thousands of new jobs throughout much of North Texas in a wide variety of career fields. The booming national gas industry continues to create new opportunities for engineers, geologists, accountants, geologists, truck drivers, field workers, administrative staff, accountants, welders, landmen, mechanics, equipment operators … the list is practically endless....

While the positive economic impact of the Barnett Shale on North Texas is becoming clear--thousands of new jobs and billions of dollars injected into the economy, insulating North Texas from the national economic downturn--there are also many questions.

One is the use of water for drilling in the Barnett Shale.

Know this:  Best practices in the energy industry...

Given rising gas prices and growing instability in key oil-producing regions of the world

, it is increasingly obvious that the United States must aggressively promote the use of alternative energy sources while at the same time expand the production of oil and natural gas here at home.

Here’s why: over the past two decades, the growing demand for energy in the U...

Pipeline development is important for the future of the Barnett Shale and the U.S. energy supply.

Natural gas production from the Barnett Shale is increasingly important to the U.S. natural gas supply and our country’s energy independence.  Currently, about 5 percent of one of the nation’s most domestically abundant and cleanest energy source is produced in the region, and as production...
