The panel will be part of the Environmental Council of the States’ (ECOS) State Environmental Protection in 2013: Hydraulic Fracturing in Focus conference.

At Energi, we are currently working extensively with the oil & gas exploration industry to develop best practices for safety programs, which we believe will help to safely and securely leverage unconventional resources without harming individuals or the environment.” Russo will also discuss best practices for protecting water resources, production well completion, wastewater management and well closure.
