Potential Sources of Salts from Water-Rock Interaction during Hydraulic Fracturing: An Experimental Study
Wells, Michaela (2016-03-30)
An on-going environmental issue from hydraulic fracturing of gas shale plays is the elevated salt content of flowback fluids. Studying this problem is important as the cost and method of disposal of the hydraulic fracturing ...
Evaluation of Enzymatic Breakers for the Reduction of Environmental and Health Hazards Associated with Hydraulic Fracturing Fluids
Groseclose, Thomas (2016-03-30)
Hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") is the process in which highly-pressurized fluids are injected underground to obtain energy resources that could not otherwise be accessed. Under high pressures, fissures are created in ...
