Marty Durbin letter to EPA regarding Science Advisory Board (SAB) Request for Nominations of Experts for SAB Hydraulic Fracturing Advisory Panel (September 10, 2012)

API is actively engaged in the activities and actions of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) relative to the 2010 House Appropriations Committee Report language, urging a study to review the potential impacts of hydraulic fracturing on drinking water resources, providing comment and input whenever possible. We have repeatedly offered the expertise of our members to both the Agency and the SAB peer review process and, unfortunately, have been disappointed by the lack of follow through and acceptance. From our perspective, critical opportunities to leverage the tremendous knowledge and experience base offered by the industry have been repeatedly missed.
