RSEE 2018

The 2nd annual Responsible Shale Energy Extraction (RSEE 2018) Conference will be held on October 13th, 2018 on the campus of the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) with a reception the evening before on October 12th.  The 2018 meeting will continue the meeting's tradition of a strong speaker lineup in combination with several panel discussions representing a diverse array of interests regarding shale energy extraction.


The Responsible Shale Energy Extraction (RSEE 2018) Conference is a unique event that brings together scientists, engineers, industry professionals, regulators, technology innovators, and concerned citizens to discuss the state of environmental stewardship within the shale energy sector. This year’s event will be held on October 13th, 2018 on the campus of the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA).  The focus will be on freshwater and wastewater management and will include round table discussions on produced water recycling, water infrastructure, and emerging new technologies with industry leaders on these respective topics. This event will also feature a series of presentations by female pioneers in the shale

sciences.The goals of the Responsible Shale Energy Extraction Conference are to further illustrate that shale energy extraction and environmental stewardship can be accomplished conjointly and that the further utilization of available technologies can have favorable environmental and economic implications.
