Today, the oil and gas industry meets almost half of the U.S.’s energy in a reliable and efficient manner. Increased public awareness and perception of the oilfield chemistry processes have led to concerns about water and chemical usage. As a result, how can the industry deliver the energy needs to our society while minimizing environmental impact?

Join leaders of the ACS GCI Oilfield Chemistry Roundtable, Dave Horton of CES Energy Solutions and Brian Price of Rockwater Energy Solutions, during this free interactive webinar as they review and analyze current chemistries and water management practices in hydraulic fracturing and discuss current efforts, potential opportunities and a call for innovation to use environmentally acceptable alternatives.
