About this Podcast...

In this exclusive interview, Oil & Gas IQ speaks with Peter Fuhr, Distinguished Scientist at the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, about how to deal with produced water coming out of the controversial hydraulic fracturing or "hydrofracking" process.

Produced water is one of the largest waste streams and in the oil & gas industry and with water production becoming a major environmental and economic issue for operators and regulators worldwide, it is every oil and gas operator’s responsibility to ensure they adopt efficient strategies to mitigate the ill effects of produced water.

In the course of this interview, Dr Fuhr touches on:

  • · Hydrofracking and its impacts as a polemic of our times
  • · Produced water from hydrofracking: exactly how challenging is it to treat it?
  • · Unconventional Gases and associated water treatment: what are the differences between dealing with UGs compared to conventional gases?
  • · Separating the technical case from the emotional argument that underlies opposition to hydrofracking
  • · Regulation of hydrofracking: the state vs. federal sovereignty issue
