  • Shale Gas and Integrated Water Management

    Exponent 2015

     

    We are pleased to announce that our Keynote Speech will be delivered by Lord Chris Smith, Task Force on Shale Gas.


    The use of water in hydraulic fracturing to unlock natural gas trapped in shale formations has brought the water-energy nexus to the fore. Extracting shale gas via hydraulic fracturing generally poses greater environmental challenges than conventional methods of gas extraction and is still perceived as a highly controversial process by many. It is therefore essential there is informed understanding among stakeholders using clear scientific evidence, transparency and consistent messages of this highly contentious issue.

     

    This conference will look at the perceived risks of shale gas extraction to the environment and the management of these risks. Speakers will also discuss the use of best available techniques (BAT) of produced and flow back waters, monitoring and management of extractive waste and integrated water management.

     

    Topics include:

    • EA Regulatory Risks Including Groundwater and Surface Water
    • Baseline Monitoring
    • Disclosure and Transparency
    • BAT
    • Well integrity
    • Wastewater Treatment
    • Case Studies from the US

    Who should attend?

    • Water Companies
    • Regulators
    • Decision Makers
    • Practitioners
    • Environmental Consultants
    • Local community groups
    • Environmental NGOs
    • Other stakeholders 

     

    This event has received the approval of The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management and will contribute to your CPD.

    • Nomination post (i.e. Ordinary Member, Honorary Secretary or Honorary Treasurer).
    • Name of nominee.
    • Class of membership within CIWEM.

    (Corporate members are Members and Fellows; and Honorary Fellows of the Institution who were corporate members immediately prior to their admission as Honorary Fellows).

    There is an expectation of committee members that they attend four committee meetings a year together with taking the lead in organising events from time to time.

    Should there be more nominations than vacancies for the Committee posts of Honorary Secretary or Honorary Treasurer, ballot papers will be circulated to Branch members in late July.

    Please contact Jack Southon (jack.southon@jbaconsulting.com 01444 473 652) if any clarification on the submission of the above nominations is needed or if you are interested in joining the committee.
