Rawwater Environmental

Rawwater Environmental works closely with local communities and oil and gas companies to provide impartial subsurface environmental protection advice.


Rawwater's Subsurface Environmental team was established in response to the needs of the regulator, the community and the extraction industry to protect underground water courses. Rawwater's 'Clean Shale Gas' research programme is developing techniques to reduce chemicals used in fracking operations. Our Bismuth Plug programme has already delivered the world's first metal plug to permanently seal oil and gas wells at the end of their life. The Bismuth Plug programme is now scheduled for the permanent sealing of carbon dioxide capture and storage reservoirs.
