Google plans tests on interstates 66 and 95, Beltway by Steve Szkotak associated press Richmond a Virginia advisory panel is recommending that Energy companies disclose the chemical ingredients they use in horizontal tracking a Type of natural Gas drilling that has raised environmental concerns. The recommendation among 14 proposed by the panel would also require drilling companies to provide the state with closely guarded Industry recipes for the tracking fluids. The proposals have been submitted to gov. Terry Mcauliffe s administration for review and a new round of Public review. Besides the requirement on tracking ingredients the recommendations also provide for greater safeguards of water supplies testing of drilling equipment and monitoring of water before drilling occurs. The latter is intended to better assess water Quality before and after drilling occurs. The review of Virginia Laws involving Hydraulic fracturing was sparked in part by concern Over the leasing of More than 80,000 acres South and East of Fredericksburg by a Dallas Energy company. That Region already has tighter drilling rules because of its proximity to water sources including a massive aquifer and Rivers that flow into the Chesapeake Bay. The Taylorsville Basin eyed by the Energy company contains an estimated 1 trillion cubic feet of natural Gas. Tracking refers to the use of Sand water and other fluids and chemicals to dislodge natural Gas from a layer cake of Rock and shale. Horizontal drilling gives Energy companies Access to vast reserves of natural Gas that previously could t be reached by conventional drilling. The process has caused a Gold Rush in the Gas Rich Marcellus shale Deposit which runs from upstate new York to West Virginia. Energy companies Are proposing the construction of hundreds of Miles of pipeline from drilling Fields and through Virginia to deliver the relatively cheap fuel to the Southeast. Conser vation and Industry y groups generally Are pleased with the proposed Virginia regulations. Nicole m. Rovner of the nature conservancy and a member of the advisory panel said the recommendations Are a step in the right direction. She cited for instance improved groundwater monitoring and enhanced testing for drilling equipment. Rover said the additional groundwater testing is important because in some locations where contamination has been found it s been difficult to state with certainty if tracking was to blame. This Way we la be testing the water beforehand so we la know if it s contaminated or not before tracking she said monday. Mike Ward executive director of the Virginia Petroleum Council said Energy companies now Only voluntarily have to list tracking ingredients. I think the state moving toward that cataloguing system and toward that information availability is a Good thing All around he said.
