On August 11, the Natural Gas Subcommittee of the Secretary of Energy Advisory Board at DoE issued draft recommendations calling for greater chemical disclosure, better tracking of water use during drilling, and emissions controls in fracking. The panel's draft report stressed the need for a cooperative and voluntary industry system for defining and promulgating best practices. The full report will be reviewed by the full advisory board at a public teleconference on August 15, and pending approval will then go to Energy Secretary Steven Chu on August 18.
