OVERVIEW

Shale gas exploration has dramatically increased in recent years due to the developments in hydraulic fracturing. Hydraulic fracturing (or fracking) extracts hard-to-reach natural gas and oil from deep underground deposits by drilling a well into bedrock (primarily shale) and then injecting fluid under high-pressure causing cracks to form. Fracking fluid contains approximately 90% water, the remainder of the fluid includes sand and chemical additives such as friction reducers, anti-bacterial agents, surfactants, and corrosion inhibitors as wells as anions, cations, metals and radioisotopes mobilized from the subsurface.

KEY LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

- Review of basic SPE with new column chemistries

- New size exclusion and RP UHPLC column technology in a 2-D format

- Identification and quantification using MS/MS and Orbitrap MS systems

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
  • • Routine environmental sample analysts and environmental researchers who work with challenging, complex matrices
  •  
  • • Laboratory managers interested in maximizing their analytical separation capabilities
  •  
  • • Industry experts wanting to expand their knowledge of chromatography and the resolving and quantifying capabilities of Orbitrap technology
  •
