Technologies for the Future David C. Carroll President and CEO NARUC Winter Committee Meetings February 16, 2015
22 Our Mission: Natural Gas, An Energy Mix Essential Reducing environmental impact and promoting sustainable economic growth Supply END USE DELIVERY SUPPLY Promoting the efficient use of energy resources Expanding the supply of affordable energy Ensuring a safe and reliable energy delivery infrastructure
33 Hydraulic Fracturing Test Site >All fracture stages might contribute to total production, however in many cases the majority of production in a horizontal well comes from a few fracture stages >Public concerns about environmental safety of hydraulic fracturing are widespread >Clearer understanding of the fracturing dynamics are key to controlling fracture dimensions and vital to the productivity of fracture networks created in long horizontal wells Source of graphic: Ciezobka, Jordan.
