"Hydraulic Fracturing." Hydraulic Fracturing - The UK Moratorium Is Lifted, but Opposition Grows (2014): 1-28. Business Source Premier. Web. 11 Nov. 2014.
This article examines activities related to hydraulic fracturing subsequent to April 2014, in Great Britain. Major discussions incorporated in this article include debates that have since gained pace regarding the dangers and gains that are associated with the use of hydraulic fracturing technology. Additionally, this article focuses on the hydraulic fracturing process, and areas that are potential hotspots of a fracking process as of April 2014. Other things mentioned in this article entail the desire of Great Britain to establish new reserves, hydraulic fracturing in other countries and environmental concerns as it relates to the same. This article is of significant benefit in our case because the information incorporated is this article is based on research findings hence it high credibility.
Barkey, Patrick M. "Tight Oil" Revolution." Montana Business Quarterly 52.2 (2014): 14. Masterfile Premier. Web. 11 Nov. 2014.
This article inherently presents the evolution that took place in the oil and gas industry particularly in United States. The report compiled in this article is of utmost significance essentially because it makes apparent the development of the mining techniques evident from the contemporary use of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing in the oil and gas industry. The techniques examined in the article accentuates that there has been a tight oil production as of 2014. The major topics that were discussed in relation to the above include the impacts of the developments in the oil industry to the economy and the reduction of pollution through emission of carbon dioxide. This article is of the essence to research that relate to the subject of hydraulic fracturing wing the fact that U.S has since developed economically as a result of these developments.
Mohan, Arvind Murali, et al. "The Functional Potential Of Microbial Communities In Hydraulic Fracturing Source Water And Produced Water From Natural Gas Extraction Characterized By Metagenomic Sequencing." Plos ONE 9.10 (2014): 1-12. Academic Search Premier. Web. 11 Nov. 2014.
Considering that the process of hydraulic fracturing may cause undesired environmental impacts to communities that are at the high risk of using polluted, subsequent to microbial activity in produced water. This article takes a step ahead to examine and define the metabolic profile of the microbial communities that have since been misunderstood. This article is of particular help to the subsequent research because it not only acquaints the researcher with the condition of the microbial communities. But also establish the environmental impacts of microbial activity in produced water as a result of fracturing operations.
Wegener, Meredith A. "Drilling Down: New York, Hydraulic Fracturing, And The Dormant Commerce Clause." BYU Journal Of Public Law 28.2 (2014): 351-372. Academic Search Premier. Web. 11 Nov. 2014.
With a particular focus on New York, this article examines shale gas development and hydraulic fracturing process in regards to the area aforementioned. In addition to the above, this article focuses on the dormant Commerce Clause of America, in regards to the many legal challenges faced during the process of gas drilling. To achieve the objectives of the research that was done prior to writing this article, the report incorporated past rulings regarding hydraulic fracturing in United States. This article will be of utmost significance owing the fact that, it acquaints the researcher with the appropriate legal issues surrounding hydraulic fracturing, particularly the environmental issues.
White, Michael L. "Fractured Communities: Hydraulic Fracturing and the Law in New York State." Albany Law Review 77.2 (2014): 643-646. Academic Search Premier. Web. 11 Nov. 2014.
This article present facts and ideas that were presented during the "Fractured Communities: Hydraulic Fracturing and the Law in New York State" symposium. Various topics were outlined in the agenda of this symposium. A major topic was the interactions that take place between the gas leases, the secondary mortgage, and the residential mortgages markets by Karen Moreau of New York State Petroleum Council. Other topics that were dealt with during the symposium as per the reports compiled and incorporated in this article include the risks involved during the process of high-volume hydraulic fracturing and court cases that relate to the same. Considering that this article merge ideas that relate to law and the process of hydraulic fracturing. This article is of essence in any research owing the fact that it presents people’s perceptions regarding the actions undertaken in hydraulic fracturing.
