Brief Summary

Technological advances have expanded the footprint of U.S. oil and gas resource development, both in rural areas and near urban centers. The ability to minimize environmental impacts and manage produced water depends on solid scientific and technical information—much of it regionally specific. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain insight from leaders in industry, government, and academia. Presentations will be drawn from peer-reviewed work on environmental legacy and produced water themes from the National Academies’ Roundtable on Unconventional Hydrocarbon Development. Participants are encourage to share their collective regional wisdom with the Roundtable members.
