Fracturing Impacts and Technologies Conference

Texas Tech University (TTU) and the Air and Waste Management Association (A&WMA) invite you to attend the Fracturing Impacts and Technologies (FIT) conference to be held September 4-5, 2014 at the Overton Hotel in Lubbock, TX. The goal of the conference is to foster an open inter-disciplinary dialogue on hydraulic fracturing in West Texas, with a particular emphasis on Barnett Shale and Permian Basin shale plays.

The conference provides an excellent opportunity to present and discuss current innovations and applications for reducing the environmental footprint of fracturing operations. The conference plenary will also feature distinguished speakers from federal and state agencies, as well as industry leaders and academic researchers who will discuss impending policies and technological breakthroughs. Concurrent sessions will also discuss potential economic benefits, environmental risks and legal considerations for land owners. Some featured session topics include technologies, water, environmental impacts, and public policy. Plus there will be special session on Investor and Land Owner. Separate registration is available for those that only wish to participate in the Investor and Land Owner Session.
