Hydraulic Fracturing: Water and environmental issues related to energy resource development in the California Monterey Shale 

Tuesday, July 16 and Wednesday, July 17, 2013
Sheraton Agoura Hills Hotel (near Thousand Oaks)
30100 Agoura Road, Agoura Hills, CA 91301

PROGRAM (opens printable PDF showing presenters and presentation topics)


Keynote Presenter: (9:30am Tuesday 16th)

Senator Fran Pavley, (D-Agoura Hills), California Senator, 27th District

"Sacramento Update on Fracking"

In May, the Senate approved SB 4 by Sen. Fran Pavley which would require public noticing before fracking can take place, permits, disclosure of chemicals and an independent scientific study of fracking and its risks to California, among other provisions. Sen. Pavley’s bill would usher in a new era of accountability and transparency, providing critical data that would enable California to adjust its policies in the future, if necessary.

This information-exchange program is a "must attend" event for citizens and decision-makers who live, work or own property in the Monterey Shale area in addition to people who make or influence policy related to the development of energy resources

What can California learn from energy development / water issues in other states?

How is public understanding of the technology framing state and local opinion and policy in California?

What will be the economic and environmental impact if the Monterey Shale oil potential is fully developed?

The purpose of the program is to provide a balanced information-exchange opportunity among the energy industry, the water industry and citizens and communities.  The focus is on the potential conflicts related to developing the economic potential of Monterey Shale energy resources and the long-term environmental sustainability of water supply sources and water-dependent ecosystems.  There are legal issues and questions about jurisdictional authority that also need to be part of the policy discussion.  Experts representing the energy industry, water resources interests, communities and businesses, environmental groups, the legal profession and landowners are represented in the presentation team.

Where does the energy potential from Monterey Shale fit with national policy?

Why can’t energy development and water/environment options coexist?

Has new technology in hydraulic fracturing made the process completely safe?

Is new water treatment technology and “no-water” hydraulic fracture a game-changer?

Is the oil in the Monterey shale seen as a state and national asset or an environmental liability?

Who has the authority, (and who gave it to them), to facilitate or constrain energy development?

Is there a need for any new regulations for the development of the Monterey Shale’s energy resources?
