What is the purpose of hydraulic fracking?



  1. 0 Votes

    Hydrolic fracking is the process of injecting liquid into cracks in rock formations in order to create larger cracks in the sediment. By further fracturing the rocks, it enables more oil and gas to pass through the rock structure and thereby makes extracting them much easier. This is the main purpose of hydraulic fracking and has been used since the 1940’s by petroleum engineers.
