The 2018 Outstanding Student Poster and PICO (OSPP) Award is awarded to Sarah Clancy for the poster/PICO entitled:
The optimal lateral length and well pad size for maximising recoverable reserves of shale gas in northern England (Clancy, S.; Worrall, F.; Davies, R.; Gluyas, J.)

Currently I am completing my PhD in the Earth Science Department at Durham University, focusing my research on the potential environmental risks from surface infrastructure associated with shale gas extraction by hydraulic fracturing. My main research areas include: surface footprint and well site location; the potential for spills and leaks; and well site legacy.
The poster I presented at the EGU general assembly 2018 assessed the optimal lateral length that limited disruption on the surface while maximising technically recoverable reserves for the Bowland Shale (UK).
