safety and environment
The energy industry remains focused on making sure every step of the natural gas production process – from set-up to drilling to fracturing to producing – is conducted safely and responsibly. The industry has used hydraulic fracturing on more than 1 million wells over the course of 60 years and does not count on a successful track record alone. We rigorously implement safety and environmental plans at every site and seek continuous improvements.
Safety of people, communities and the environment is the top priority for all responsible companies and authorities working to develop unconventional gas resources. Extra steps are taken to ensure safety for our employees and the members of the communities in which we operate.
Throughout the entire unconventional gas life cycle - from exploration to decommissioning - care is taken to minimize the disruption to the communities in which we operate and to protect the environment.
