EPA/WATER RIN: 2040-AF35 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: Effluent Guidelines and Standards for Unconventional Oil and Gas Extraction Including Coalbed Methane and Shale Gas Extraction 
Abstract: In recent years there has been substantial growth in extraction and production of oil and gas resources including coalbed methane and shale gas using unconventional technologies. Part of this growth can be attributed to advances in directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing. This unconventional oil and gas production can generate substantial volumes of wastewater. These wastewaters have been found to contain elevated concentrations of some or all of the following pollutants: fracturing fluid additives, salt content (often expressed as total dissolved solids or TDS), conventional pollutants, organics, metals, and NORM (naturally occurring radioactive material), which, if discharged, can directly impact aquatic life and drinking water sources. The current state of regulations for discharges associated with these unconventional activities varies. This action will collect information, review existing technologies, and develop regulatory options to control discharges of pollutants from these sources.
