Contents Notes
Natural gas fracking from the legacy prespective -- Technical aspects of shale gas extraction -- Obtaining land rights to subsurface shale gas -- Lease terms & consequences -- Following the participants in fracking -- Life cycle stages of the fracking operation -- Employment issues -- Fracking well waste outflows -- Disposal of waste liquids & sludges -- Fracking chemical secrecy & disclosure -- Transportation issues for gas & wastes -- Gas pipelines -- Exports of natural gas -- Litigation about fracking wells & wastes -- Restoration remedies after fracking -- Financial factors & royalties -- Competitive aspects & antitrust -- State & local regulatory controls -- National & international government issues -- Public & Native American land issues. The Law of Fracking is the first serious law text to deal comprehensively with clients' needs in this rapidly emerging area of the law. Guidance is needed because government entities, landowners, and the environment are heavily impacted, and big-firm gas lobbyists need to understand what empowered opponents could do to regulate the sharply divisive industry. These legal issues revolve around such topics as land rights, lease terms and consequences, life cycle stages of the fracking operation, employment, waste outflows, chemical secrecy and disclosure, transportation for gas and waste, pipelines, and public and native American land issues. The text also addresses cleanup and restoration of the fracking environment. -- From promotional material.
