ASTM International Workshop on Estimating LNAPL Transmissivity

Press release date: Dec 02, 2013

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., — A workshop on Estimating LNAPL Transmissivity will be held Jan. 30, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency Houston in Houston, Texas. Sponsored by ASTM Subcommittee E50.04 on Corrective Action and Committee E50 on Environmental Assessment, Risk Management and Corrective Action, the workshop will be held in conjunction with the January standards development meetings of the committees.

The objective of this workshop is to provide a basic understanding of how LNAPL transmissivity can be estimated and how to use estimated values in understanding practical limits for hydraulic recovery of petroleum. This information may then be used in making effective decisions with regards to LNAPL assessment, management and remediation.

The target audience for this workshop is environmental consultants, environmental project managers, regulatory project managers and technical staff. Attendees should have a basic understanding of hydrogeologic processes and non-aqueous phase liquid (NAPL) fundamentals. It is recommended that all attendees become familiar with ASTM E2856, Standard Guide for Estimation of LNAPL Transmissivity, in order to maximize the use of their time at the workshop.

Online registration is now open and closes Jan. 22. The attendance fee for ASTM members is $160 USD online and $185 USD onsite; the fee for non-ASTM members is $185 USD online and $210 USD onsite.
