What is Hydraulic Fracturing?
Hydraulic fracturing is a procedure that can increase the flow of oil or gas from a well. It is done by pumping liquids down a well into subsurface rock units under pressures that are high enough to fracture the rock. The goal is to create a network of interconnected fractures that will serve as pore spaces for the movement of oil and natural gas to the well bore.
Combined with fracturing Hydraulic has Turned Previously unproductive organic-rich shales Into the-largest natural gas fields in the world. The Barnett Shale and are examples of previously unproductive rock units that have been converted into fantastic gas or oil fields by hydraulic fracturing.
