Studies on deep shale formations and other "tight" reservoirs.
The production of oil and natural gas from deep shale formations and other “tight” reservoirs, and the use of hydraulic fracturing, have been closely regulated and extensively studied for many years. The ongoing effort to closely monitor these activities has yielded many studies and reports, including the ones listed in this report.

6 - Special Report
A working paper analyzing the peer reviewed literature from 2009-2014 related to environmental and public health impacts of shale gas development.
While research continues to lag behind the rapid scaling of unconventional forms of oil and gas development, there has been a surge of peer-reviewed scientific papers published in recent years. In fact, of all the available literature on the impacts of shale gas development, over 75% has been published since January 1, 2013.
