Claire Gassiat, Tom Gleeson, René Lefebvre and Jeffrey McKenzie Hydraulic fracturing in faulted sedimentary basins: Numerical simulation of potential contamination of shallow aquifers over long time scales Water Resources Research 49

Version of Record online: 12 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/2013WR014287

Key Points

  • Hydraulic fracturing leads to the transport of contaminants along the fault
  • Contaminants might reach the shallow aquifer in less than 1000 years
  • Contaminant potential controlled proximity of hydrofracturing to fault
