Oil and Natural Gas Essential for More than Power

MYTH: You don’t use oil and natural gas in your everyday life. FACT: Oil and natural gas are essential for more than power. LEARN MORE: Beyond power, oil and natural gas is used to make clothing, life-saving devices, solar panels, wind turbines and the fertilizer that is essential to the world’s food supply.

FACT: Multiple scientific studies shows that oil and natural gas development is protecting the environment. Study after study concludes that oil and natural gas development is protecting the environment. Yet, as the Denver Post recently editorialized, “such reports haven’t seemed to matter to the green anti-fracking groups that continue to trumpet…alleged dangers.”

November 18, 2015 There’s no evidence of water-based contaminants seeping into drinking water wells atop a vast oil and gas field in northeastern Colorado, according to Colorado State University scientists working to protect and inform citizens about the safety of their water. Ken Carlson, professor of civil and environmental engineering, has led a series of…

November 18, 2015 In what the Yale University described as the the largest study of its kind, a Yale-led investigation “found no evidence that trace contamination of organic compounds in drinking water wells near the Marcellus Shale in northeastern Pennsylvania came from deep hydraulic fracturing shale horizons, underground storage tanks, well casing failures, or surface…

November 2, 2015 From North Texans for Natural Gas: The scientific consensus is that fracking does not pose a major risk of groundwater pollution. In fact, public data actually show that natural gas and fracking can help preserve precious water resources. Below is a list of major scientific studies and expert assessments that confirm fracking…

Properly conducted research, which has analyzed millions of air samples in Texas, finds that oil and gas activity does not pose public health concerns.  Texas has the nation’s most comprehensive air monitoring systems in the nation.  The so-called “research” activists cite are authored by known anti-oil and gas activists, funded by anti-oil and gas third parties.…

MYTH: Fracking pumps dangerous toxins into the air people breath. FACT: Texas has the most comprehensive air monitoring systems in the nation. Credible, peer-reviewed research of Texas air quality near oil and gas facilities found that oil and gas activity does not pose public health concerns. In fact, methane emissions from fracking facilities have dropped by more than…

Today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is releasing its long awaited, five-year study, which finds “hydraulic fracturing activities have not led to widespread, systemic impacts to drinking water resources.” As many have noted, this is the most important study on hydraulic fracturing to come out over the past five years – a fact that EPA’s…

The anti-fracking group Environment Texas teamed up with Frontier Group this week to publish an inaccurate and misleading report alleging environmental harms from energy development on lands owned by the University of Texas (UT). A spokeswoman for Environment Texas said UT “has a particular responsibility to protect Texas’ environment,” suggesting that existing oversight of oil and…

MYTH: Fracking is inherently unsafe. The closer a pregnant woman lives to a well, the higher the chances that she will have a baby with a birth defect. FACT: Every health, safety and economic consideration is factored into the energy development process. Texas places a premium on environmental protection while ensuring our state’s vital energy industry can…
