Natural gas cracked out of shale deposits may mean the U.S. has a stable supply
 for a century

In order to obtain the gas, the industry would have to do horizontal drilling and hydro fracturing, or "fracking," of the shale formations in which the gas is trapped.
 Fracking involves a mix of water and chemicals to release the

Under high development, the number of wells drilled would go from 2,727 per year to 4,842 per year,

Currently, some estimates wells in New York, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia are producing about 500 million cubic feet of gas per day. With just medium development of the Marcellus in the three states, he projects output could rise to
 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas
 per day by 2011 and as much as
9.5 billion by 2020.

Areas of shale deposits

Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex hosts 11 facilities for handling natural gas and at least 20 pipelines serving the Barnett Shale—where water pressure and horizontal drilling are used
to release natural gas from
rock formations.

Fracking,” as it’s colloquially known, involves injecting millions of gallons of water, sand, and chemicals, many of them toxic, into the earth at high pressures to break up rock formations
and release natural gas trapped inside.
When this form of drilling is allowed to take place without proper regulation. Some are pointing to a wave of groundwater-contamination incidents and mysterious health problems out West, in Colorado, New Mexico, and Wyoming, where hydraulic fracturing has been going on for years as part of a massive oil-and-gas boom.

Shale gas fracking: MPs call for safety inquiry after tremors

Never mind the spin, what do we know for sure about the controversial process of fracking?|
A new study shows that shale-gas production can contaminate water supplies, threatening the fast-growing industry

on the natural gas

'hydraulic fracturing' that uses far greater amounts of water than traditional natural gas exploration. Drillers pump large amounts of water mixed with sand and other proponents into the shale formation under high pressure to fracture the shale around the well, which allows the natural gas to flow freely.and be gathered up and processed to sell to consumers Once the hydraulic fracturing process is completed, the used water, often referred to as "frac returns," must be used in the next well or treated to remove chemicals and minerals.

Shale gas -- the natural gas acquired from Marcellus shale and other deposits via "fracking" -- is clean burning and abundant, but drilling for this natural gas can pollute drinking water

Gulf Deepwater Drilling Resumes Without Changes To Spill Liability

Safety is our top priority and the administration has already taken unprecedented steps to increase oversight and safety of offshore drilling," White House spokesman Clark Stevens said. "Any offshore drilling taking place in the United States must meet the rigorous new safety standards put in place since the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill."

Fracking Fluid You Can Drink?

Seeking to boost a greener image of oil and gas exploration, oilfield services giant Halliburton has formulated a hydraulic fracturing fluid from ingredients sourced from the food industry. So confident of its safety, one company executive even took a swig of it at a recent conference. The CleanStim® fluid contains a gelling agent, crosslinker/buffer, breakers, and a surfactant, which is mixed with water at the job site. Environmentalists question the energy industry extraction technique, which uses water, sand, and chemicals to crack underground rock formations to release oil or natural gas.

DENVER -- An energy company executive & sip of fracking fluid at an industry conference this month has been called a
demonstration by some and a stunt by others, but it & bringing attention to
new recipes for hydraulic fracturing fluids that in the past have
contained chemicals commonly used for antifreeze or bleaching hair.
During a keynote lunch speech at the conference presented by the Colorado Oil
and Gas Association, Halliburton Co. CEO Dave Lesar talked about addressing public
concerns about hydraulic fracturing, which extracts natural gas by blasting
a mix of water, chemicals and sand underground. He raised a container of Halliburton' s new fracking fluid made from materials sourced from the food industry, then called up a fellow executive to demonstrate how safe it was by drinking it, according to two attendees.
The executive mocked reluctance, then took a swig.

What he drank was apparently CleanStim, which when Halliburton announced it in November was undergoing field trials. A Halliburton spokeswoman didn't respond to a question asking how that executive is doing now, or who he is. Instead, she referred a reporter to a web page on CleanStim. The Houston company, which has operations in about 80 countries, has said the product shouldn't be considered edible.
"I thought if this stuff was so benign, why wouldn't the CEO drink it himself? That frankly was my first thought," said Environmental Defense Fund's Mark Brownstein, who saw the demonstration. "My second thought, more seriously, is on the one hand, I'm pleased to see Halliburton is taking steps to remove toxic chemicals from  fluid. I wonder why if they have this technology why it wouldn't become standard practice.<br /><br />
"I also do in some ways think the stunt is very much indicative of the problem the industry has in assuring the public that they are in fact taking public concerns seriously," Brownstein said. "Because quite honestly, a homeowner in Pennsylvania doesn't have the option of having an underling drink his water. He has to do it himself.
Roughly 90 percent of wells in the U.S. are according to the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.
Each component of fracking fluid does something different, such as killing bacteria or preventing corrosion. As fracturing evolves, engineers have found other substances besides synthetic chemicals to perform those functions, said Colorado State University environmental engineering professor Ken Carlson, who also attended the conference.
The thing I took away is the industry is stepping up to plate and taking these concerns seriously," Carlson said. "Halliburton is showing they can get the same economic benefits or close to that by putting a little effort into reformulating the Companies have resisted disclosing exact recipes for fracking fluid for competitive reasons, and those who voluntarily post disclosures on a public online registry called FracFocus can exclude some chemicals.
Halliburton's website lists CleanStim's ingredients as enzyme, exthoxylated sugar-based fatty acid ester, inorganic and organic acids, inorganic salt, maltodextrin, organic ester, partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, polysaccharide polymer and sulfonated alcohol.Brownstein said using ingredients from the food industry won't necessarily make a fracking fluid safe for drinking water. "Salt is a food-grade ingredient, but if you have too much salt in your well water, your well water is not usable," Brownstein said.
Still Carlson said it was a good sign that Halliburton and others have introduced f luids[ that they say are safer for the environment for reasons such as using biodegradable ingredients or allowing for less water use.[
