The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratory that produces technological solutions to America's energy challenges. For more than 100 years, the laboratory has developed tools and processes to provide clean, reliable, and affordable energy to the American people. Developing the science and technology base to enable the efficient and environmentally sustainable production of domestic shale-gas resources is a top priority in NETL's energy production research. Realizing economical, secure, and abundant fuel supplies must balance with protecting air, land, water resources, and human health. New developments in the energy industry, such as horizontal drilling and multi-stage hydraulic fracturing used for shale gas and oil production, have raised significant public concern over their potential to impact the environment. NETL is actively seeking partnerships with operators to monitor environmental signals in order to develop: (1) independent datasets documenting environmental conditions from pre-development through production to provide the public with an unbiased perspective on the impacts of shale gas development; and (2) the science and technology base for future strategies to ensure that adverse events can be avoided, or where not avoided, detected and appropriately mitigated. NETL's field efforts will be fully funded; there is no cost to operators.
