ABSTRACT
Exploitation of shale gas wells requires the use of millions of gallons of water. Water is mixed with sand and chemical additives in order to obtain a fluid which will be injected among the walls of the clay crack formation [1, 2]. Some chemical additives include biocides, lubricants and detergents. Hydraulic fracturing operation may have adverse consequences on the environment: pollution of groundwater and soils, landscape degradation or noise [3]. These issues without taking into account gas leakage, may contribute to the greenhouse effect. This paper presents some specific responses for shale gas exploration and exploitation.
