Other H2020 LCE16 Projects

The FracRisk project actively collaborates with all H2020 LCE16 projects

  The SHEER Project (SHale gas Exploration and Exploitation induced Risks)

The objective of the SHEER project is to develop best practices for assessing and mitigating the environmental footprint of shale gas exploration and exploitation, developing a probabilistic procedure for assessing short and long-term risks associated with groundwater contamination, air pollution and induced seismicity.

  The SXT project (ShaleXenvironmenT)

T​he primary objective of the SXT project is to assess the environmental footprint of shale gas exploitation in Europe in terms of water usage and contamination, induced seismicity, and fugitive emissions. Using synergistically experiments and modeling activities, ShaleXenvironmenT will achieve its objective via a fundamental understanding of rock-fluid interactions, fluid transport, and fracture initiation and propagation, via technological innovations obtained in collaboration with industry, and via improvements on characterization tools.

  The M4ShaleGas project (Measuring, Monitoring, Mitigating, Managing the environmental impact of shale gas)

The consortium studies and evaluates potential risks and impacts of shale gas exploration and exploitation. The general objective is to develop science-based best practice recommendations for minimizing the environmental footprint of shale gas exploration and exploitation in Europe.
