Global Shale Gas and Water Risk

Please join us for a presentation and networking opportunity on Thursday, September 11 in Washington, D.C. for a special briefing on the report Global Shale Gas Development: Water Availability and Business Risks. This analysis, authored by experts from the World Resources Institute, will the first to show how freshwater availability could limit shale oil and gas development in many parts of the world.

Policy makers, energy companies, investors, and civil society groups should view this report as an essential resource to help protect water security while promoting energy security through shale resource development internationally.

Lead author Paul Reig will detail the report’s findings, conduct a tutorial for the interactive web map accompanying the report, and answer questions. The briefing will also be broadcast live via webinar.
