Technical Committee on Hydraulic Fracturing (TCHF)

The goals of ARMA’s Technical Committee on Hydraulic Fracturing are to advance technical development, investigate and model the physical processes, and promote environmentally responsible practices in hydraulic fracturing. TCHF members organize and lead technical sessions at annual symposiums; organize workshops on the physics of fracture initiation, propagation, and closure; develop white papers on hydraulic fracturing; and collaborate with other professional societies.
