Some criticism of this study is inevitable, as one of the three authors is a Shell geologist and some of the funding came from the petroleum industry (in addition to a US Department of Energy grant), but expertise and access to data from the wells that this brings can be very valuable. The industry is often criticized by the public (or frustrated academics) for not providing the data necessary to facilitate research. Studies like this one can help.
