Call for Abstracts
Join AIPG and the Ohio Section of AIPG for this informative conference. It is structured to address the most crucial aspects of the geology of shales and the role of hydraulic fracturing as it pertains to
hydrocarbon production in shale and other tight formations.
This sixth annual conference is a great opportunity for industry, research scientists and engineers, regulators, and consultants to come
together to learn about the critical aspects developing hydrocarbon
resources from shales in the Appalachian Basin. Topics will include
geology of shales, the process of hydraulic fracturing, the control
and monitoring of fracture propagation, the relationship of fracture
propagation to overlying aquifer systems, monitoring for environmental contamination, surface controls to prevent environmental damage,
recent developments in the processing and recycling of production
and flowback water, legal and regulatory perspectives, and many other technical and environmental aspects.
To have your abstract considered for a presentation, please go to
http://www.aipg.org/abstract/ to submit an abstract online by March
23, 2015. Abstracts must be in Word format, single spaced, 12 point
Times New Roman, and should not exceed one page. No tables or
pictures will be accepted. You will be notified by March 31, 2015 if
your abstract has been accepted. Extended abstracts and full papers
are welcome, but not required. Oral presentations will be approximately 30 minutes, which includes time for questions.
