For example, the Antrim and volume of gas contained in the New Albany Shales are shallower shales that reservoir, regardless of the ability to produce significant volumes of formation water produce it. unlike most of the other gas shales. Development of the Fayetteville Shale is occurring in rural areas of north central Arkansas, while development of the Barnett Shale is focused in the area of Forth Worth, Texas, in an urban and suburban environment.
The Clean Air Act (CAA) limits air emissions from engines, gas processing equipment, and other sources associated with drilling and production. The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires that exploration and production on federal lands be thoroughly analyzed for environmental impacts. However, federal agencies do not have the resources to administer all of these environmental programs for all the oil and gas sites around the country. Also, as explained below, one set of nation-wide regulations may not always be the most effective way of assuring the desired level of environmental protection.
These federally established authorities have been created to protect the water quality of the entire river basin and to govern uses of the water170.
