What does hydrofracking do?



  1. 0 Votes

    Hydrofracking is a nickname of sorts for hydraulic fracturing.  It’s a mining/drilling technique used to get oil or gas to flow into the main well bore – water and ‘proppants’ are injected into the well bore faster than the earth can absorb it, which results in fractures around the main well bore.  Oil and gas are then free to flow from surrounding areas through the fractures into the main well bore.

    “Hydrofracking”, or hydraulic fracturing is fracturing rocks using water to increase the output of wells.  It is most often used in oil and natural gas wells, and has been commonly used over the last 60 years.  Hydrofracking can occur naturally, but is more often induced.
