U.S.-China Shale Gas Training Program Workshop #2: Environment, Health, and Safety
Dates: July 24-25, 2013
Locations: Beijing, China
USTDA is funding the U.S.-China Shale Gas Training Program to introduce Chinese energy sector officials and project sponsors to U.S. shale gas best practices, policies and technologies. USTDA is partnering with China's National Energy Administration (NEA) to conduct the Program along with the U.S. Departments of Energy, State, and Commerce. The Program includes a series of four workshops in China over a 20 month period.
The Environment, Health, and Safety Workshop will examine the environmental, health, and safety issues of developing shale gas resources including the impacts of activities on air, land, and water resources. This workshop is designed to introduce the U.S. suppliers of equipment and services for improving environmental performance and/or monitoring and reducing environmental impacts of shale gas development to Chinese policy makers and buyers. Issues to be examined include:
- Hydraulic fracturing
- Water and solid waste management
- Air quality
- Greenhouse gas emissions
- Truck traffic
- Induced seismicity
- Surface disturbance
The two day agenda will include presentation of U.S. regulations, case studies and technical innovations as well as best practices for media coverage, societal response, research and technology development, sustainable operating practices, and education outreach efforts.
