Live EPA update today on Fracturing and Produced Water Panel; Energy Water Solutions' Dr. Stewart on EPA frac flowback and produced water panel

WASHINGTON, Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- David R. Stewart, PhD PE and Chief Science Officer of Energy Water Solutions in Houston Texas was invited to give feedback as an expert member on the Environmental Protection Agency's Frac Flowback and Produced Water Technical Roundtable.  The EPA hosts an online update via live webinar on these issues today.  Dr. Stewart was invited to Washington DC with other industry experts to meetings on September 15, 2012 of the Hydraulic Fracturing panel which was held at EPA Headquarters.  This committee was formed at the request of Congress, and this morning there will be a live online update to "EPA's study of the Potential Impacts of Hydraulic Fracturing on Drinking Water Resources:  Flowback and Produced Water Technical Roundtable". Dr. Stewart said, "Congress asked the EPA to study these issues, and our role is to discuss future regulations including using frac flowback and produced water for beneficial use".  Dave Stewart has patented technologies and processes that work together for Energy Water Solutions clients to filter frac flowback and produced water and turn it to clean fresh water.  This clean water still needs state legislation passed, to be ground discharged in some states for beneficial energy and agricultural uses.

Energy Water Solutions' Dr. Dave Stewart participated in several meetings on expert panels at the invitation of the EPA, to discuss how hydraulic fracturing could affect drinking water resources.  Representative energy company participants on this EPA frack water committee include Chesapeake Energy Corporation, Chevron, HighMount, Newfield Energy, Range Resources, Southwestern Energy as well as regulatory officials from the Utah Division of Oil, Gas and Mining, Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, Railroad Commission of Texas and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.  You may see the list of expert participants on the frac flowback and produced water panel and their bios at: www.epa.gov/hfstudy/pdfs/flowback-bio.pdf

The Environmental Protection Agency has scheduled a public webinar for today January 11, 2013 at 9:00 AM Central time as an update to the Hydraulic Fracturing Study progress report.  To register for this public webinar please login to:  www.cluin.org/conf/tio/FRACJan11/

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.
