Ground Water Research and Education Foundation events coming to Grapevine

The Ground Water Research and Education Foundation is hosting the Stray Gas Incidence and Response Forum and the Unconventional Oil and Gas Water Management Forum, at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, July 9–11

According to the foundation, the development of unconventional gas resources poses new challenges for the management and protection of water resources. The Unconventional Oil and Gas Water Management Forum will focus on the status of current regulations and the potential risks and challenges associated with safe-guarding and managing water resources in areas of shale-gas development.

Organizers say the Stray Gas Incidence and Response Forum is an opportunity for regulatory officials, industry, consultants and other interested parties in the region to learn, interact and develop recommendations that will improve protocols for response to the prevention of stray gas incidents.

The Texas Water Resources Institute and the Texas A&M Institute of Renewable Natural Resources are Event Partners for these foundation events. For more information, see www.gwpc.org/events.
