Chemicals in Oil and Gas Operations

Health Effects Spreadsheet and Summary

TEDX maintains a publicly available database of the potential health effects of chemicals used during natural gas operations. It is presented here in an Excel file format for easy searching and sorting. The list currently contains nearly 1,000 products, but it is by no means complete. The data are summarized and discussed in the Summary Statement.


Product manufacturers should be required to divulge 100% of the chemicals used in their products in order to allow effective monitoring of air and water quality.
