This level is accomplished through constant scrutiny and continual improvement of industry efforts. With continual improvement in mind, this workshop will focus on innovative technologies for well construction and integrity, greener stimulation techniques, waste and water management, improving air quality during and after the completion, and the protection of groundwater and the ecosystems we work in. Emphasis will be placed on best practices that mitigate current environmental risks. Attendees will be expected to challenge the status quo, to engage in discussion and to exchange ideas regarding ongoing applications and issues surrounding unconventional resource development.
