Natural gas activity has resulted in air exposures that pose health concerns

FACT: Natural gas activity has NOT resulted in air exposures that pose health concerns.

GET THE FACTS: A comprehensive study published in a peer-reviewed journal, analyzed 4.6 million air tests from continuous air monitors across the Barnett Shale. Air tests occurred as natural gas wells were drilled, hydraulically fractured, produced and reworked. Emissions from every type of natural gas-related activity were captured and the study concluded that “gas production activities have not resulted in community-wide exposures to [compounds] at levels that would pose a health concern.”
