Press release date: March 20, 2012

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., -On April 30, 2012, ASTM International (ASTM) will host an online forum to discuss the coordination of standards activity relative to commercial scale hydraulic fracturing. The forum is open to the public and free of charge; stakeholders at all levels of commercial hydraulic fracturing applications are encouraged to attend.

ASTM is committed to providing broad-based support to topics of emerging need. For more than 100 years, ASTM has worked hand in hand with the petroleum, gas and other energy producing sectors to develop high quality and market relevant standards, guides and test methods to improve efficiency; address health, safety and environmental concerns; and disclose information across operational chains or to fulfill regulatory requirements.

ASTM has several technical committees whose scope and work activity is relevant to this topic. ASTM recently provided the American Petroleum Institute (API) with a list of existing ASTM standards that may be useful references in the API suite of hydraulic fracturing standards. This forum is an opportunity to expand preliminary discussions that have begun within several ASTM technical committees to see if there are other standards needs recognized by the broad stakeholder community that ASTM could support.

ASTM International welcomes and encourages participation in the development of its standards. For more information on becoming an ASTM member, visit www.astm.org/JOIN.

ASTM International is one of the largest international standards development and delivery systems in the world. ASTM International meets the World Trade Organization (WTO) principles for the development of international standards: coherence, consensus, development dimension, effectiveness, impartiality, openness, relevance and transparency. ASTM standards are accepted and used in research and development, product testing, quality systems and commercial transactions.
