MAKING HYDROFRACKING SAFER- 
   

Hydrofracking The key to obtaining substantial yields of natural gas from wells drilled into hard shale rock has been used for many years throughout the US, Canada and many other countries.

In recent years, as the technology has evolved, it has also become controversial in some areas.

While EPA and regional governmental bodies are trying to optimize the risks versus returns and with consideration to US Energy Security new technologies are starting to emerge to deal with some of the potential problems.

One issue which is starting to be addressed is the presence of Radium and other Radionuclides (including Radon) in Fracking Flowback Water and Produced Water.

When rock is fractured deep beneath the ground there is often a certain amount of Radium present.

Radium is a decay product of Uranium which was present in the rock hundreds of millions of years ago. Radon is a decay product of Radium.

Lamnipipe is designed to prevent Radium and Radionuclides from travelling to the surface when Frack Water and Produced Water is withdrawn.
