Please join us for this seminar that will focus on recent air emission studies and issues related to oil and gas operations. As concerns over increased oil and gas activity using hydraulic fracturing continue to mount, significant efforts and focus have turned to air emissions - both from oil and gas operations generally, and hydraulic fracturing specifically. In this session, our speakers, who have been and are involved in the forefront of these issues, will present an overview of completed and ongoing studies regarding the impact of airborne emissions associated with oil and gas operations.
Topics will include a general overview of air emissions studies focused on oil and gas activities to date, and a detailed discussion of the ongoing Garfield County Gas Emission Study conducted by Colorado State University and Air Resource Specialists, Inc. with input from a technical advisory committee. Finally, we will briefly highlight the latest litigation and regulatory developments related to hydraulic fracturing.
Speakers for this program are:
- Dr. Jeffrey L. Collett, Professor and Department Head, Colorado State University Department of Atmospheric Science
