  • The Negative Effects Of Fracking

    Fracking; is it Harmful to American Citizens? Fracking in the United States has recently hit a boom. Fracking is not actually the process of retrieving the natural gas or oil. However, it is the process of improving the energy flow of the components before the extraction of oil or natural gas begin. In these terms, fracking will be counted as the whole process, before and after drilling. Fracking has many supporters and many foes. Although the U.S has been fracking for a while and has cut down oil prices, fracking does and has done a numerous amount of damage, ranging from infrastructure problems to pollution.

  • Summary: The Benefits Of Fracking

    the benefits of fracking outweigh the risks. If done professionally, fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, is beneficial to society because it provides towns, states, and countries with the natural gas they need, and reduces costs by using old oil and gas wells. Fracking is the process of extracting natural gas from in between layers of bedrock below the surface of the earth. The process involves sending large amounts of water and sand, along with small amounts of toxic chemicals at…

    which will affect our health. Fracking can ruin the land and even cause earthquakes. Water can be contaminated if cancer causing chemicals escape. Many communities aren’t allowing fracking, because it’s such a huge concern. Over the past 60 years, fracking has been used for a wide variety of purposes. The fracking process starts with a well that is drilled either vertically or at an angle to a surface depth of one to two miles, or more according to the EPA. Then the vertical well is encased in…

  • The Pros And Cons Of Hydraulic Fracturing

    by injecting sand and/or chemicals at high pressure to extract natural gas or oil ("What is Fracking?"). Fracking is used to extract shale gas, tight sand gas, tight sand oil, and coal seam gas (better known as methane). Hydraulic fracturing is a relatively older extraction process; however, it has been gaining controversy lately over the issues of water contamination, possible negative effects on the environment, and health hazards ("Danger of Fracking"). Despite many claims by critics,…

  • Fracking Process Analysis

    process of fracking. Fracking is a process of drilling down into the earth before high-pressure water mixture is directed at the Rock to release the gas inside. After that is done water, sand and chemicals are injected into the Rock at high pressure which allows the gas to flow out to the head of the well. This process can be executed vertical and horizontally by drilling through the Rock layers. This allows new directional ways to release gases or used for existing channels to have better flow.…

  • Hydraulic Fracking: Negative Effects On The Environment

    order to get oil and natural gas. Fracking is a fairly simple process but has several steps involved. Before oil companies can start drilling into the ground they have to find these areas known as shale areas or tight rock formation. Once they find one of these areas, they start to drill into the ground for about a mile. After the drill has gone down for about a mile, it turns horizontally and continues to drill for several thousand feet. Once the drill is done it will go back and cased and…
