New Certification and Performance Standards for Shale Drilling

On March 20, 2013 an initiative by industry and environmental groups created a center that will provide shale producers with independent certification of performance standards.
The newly formed Center for Sustainable Shale Development (CSSD) has set 15 initial performance standards addressing environmental and safety concerns, which will form the basis of the center’s independent third party certification process.
The initiative is complementary to the regulatory framework and developed from a recommendation of the Shale Gas Production Subcommittee of the U.S. Secretary of Energy.
