Few areas of energy development or resource extraction have attracted as much public, academic, and legal attention and controversy in recent years as hydraulic fracturing. This treatise is a desk book on the law of hydraulic fracturing, and it covers federal and state statutory and regulatory requirements and certain litigation on this subject.

For ease of use, this book is divided into nine parts:
•  Part I provides both an introduction to this topic and a detailed description of the hydraulic fracturing process.
•  Part II provides a detailed description of and response to some of the most pressing policy issues currently associated with hydraulic fracturing.
•  Part III summarizes the legislative and regulatory requirements that apply to hydraulic fracturing at the federal level.
•  Parts IV, V, and VI cover the legislative and regulatory requirements that apply to hydraulic fracturing at the state level, with the individual state chapters grouped by regions (Part IV western, Part V south central, Part VI eastern and southeastern).
•  Part VII summarizes the current case law on hydraulic fracturing, including both reported and unreported cases.
•  Part VIII offers concluding thoughts on where the law of hydraulic fracturing stands today and how it is likely to evolve in the future.
•  Part IX contains charts of federal and state hydraulic fracturing requirements.

Each chapter provides thorough treatment of the topic and also features insightful practice tips, warnings, and timing considerations. In addition, all the state chapters have a convenient resource section setting out contact information for the key governmental agencies, environmental groups, and industry organizations.
