Fracking expert witness candidates are typically professional engineers with background in petroleum engineering, environmental engineering, completions engineering, chemical engineering, and/or hydrology.
Fracking, also known as hydraulic fracturing or hydraulic fracking, is an oil and gas well stimulation technique that involves injecting water, sand and chemical compounds under high pressure into bedrock formations. Hydraulic fracturing has revolutionized oil and gas drilling, but fracking operations regulations are imperative to prevent groundwater contamination, safeguard wildlife, preserve drinking water, and minimize air pollution.
Legal cases involving hydraulic fracturing issues could involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement cases or trade secret disputes. A subject matter expert in fracking might also provide expert testimony in a product liability case, design defect case, personal injury case, or class action suit. Expert witness services by a hydraulic fracturing expert could include failure analysis, an expert report, patent invalidity and validity arguments, deposition, expert opinion, and expert testimony at a trial. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a subject matter expert with prior expert witness testimony experience.
Whether the project involves natural gas extraction, hydraulic fracturing fluid, shale gas, water contamination, horizontal drilling, oil production, wells, fracking fluid, chlorinated solvents, or any other component of hydraulic fracturing, Cahn Litigation Services has the experience needed to efficiently search and secure expert witnesses. Representing a plaintiff or defendant, Cahn is frequently called on by top litigators to support fracking matters.
