– You can join in the discussion, please leave a comment below –

Proposed (P7): “This work package should examine the best practice in relation to UGEE operations including but not limited to: water resources management, risk management/minimisation and treatment, avoidance or mitigation of detrimental seismic events, use of chemicals, well-head construction, residuals management and air emissions management.”
First reaction
Refers to hydraulic fracturing only.  No mention of well-case construction and integrity, one of the main causes of gas and fluid leakages in wells.
Possible discussion points
  1. Widen Terms of Reference
  2. Include research on well-case construction and integrity
  3. Include Health Impact Assessment of UGEE
