Upstream Conventional & Unconventional Onshore Development
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is installing an air quality monitor in the parking lot of the Karnes County Courthouse, located in the heart of activity within the Eagle Ford Shale play. Placement of the monitor followed a University of Texas study depicting higher emissions downwind from oil field activity. Another monitor located in Floresville, southeast of San Antonio on the outskirts of the shale play, is utilized to gather data upwind and downwind from the Eagle Ford. The Karnes County monitor is expected to be operational in the next two months.
