EPA Requirements:

What is required by the EPA?

Right now the EPA (Environmental Protection Administration) is engaged in a complete review of Hydrofracking technology throughout the United States. The goal is to make sure that best practices can be developed to minimize danger while Hydrofracking evolves.

EPA establishes allowable limits for radioactive nuclides in Flowback Water and Produced Water. Produced water tends to have higher concentrations of radionuclides. At present these limits are being re-evaluated and will likely be lowered. It is here that Lamnipipe may prove to be a valuable resource both for meeting future EPA standards and insuring that Hydrofracking can be done as safely as possible.
Hydrofracking is an essential technology and the natural gas it produces is an important transitional fuel source critical to the Energy Security of the country.
