GSI Environmental Inc. and its partners at Texas A&M University assembled a multi-disciplinary team of scientists, researchers, industry, government and regulatory representatives to evaluate current sampling methodologies and analytical technologies, conduct field trials in multiple shale plays and develop recommended practices for:

Baseline Sampling for Dissolved Methane: Development of recommendations for improved sample collection and data interpretation for pre-drill and post-drill sampling programs, based on an improved understanding of the variability associated with sampling methodology and temporal factors.

Advanced Analytical Air Monitoring: Development of a protocol for measurement of air emissions from production facilities and open impoundments using an Open Path Fourier Transform Infrared (OP-FTIR) spectrometer, integrated meteorological sensors and an optical imaging camera.

Produced Water Characterization: Evaluation of innovative analytical technologies for on-site analysis of key chemical and microbial constituents in produced water to facilitate cost-effective reuse, treatment, and/or disposal of flowback/produced water.
