What is Hydraulic Fracturing?
Hydraulic fracturing is a decades old technology used to develop oil and natural gas resources from deep shale formations. Yet while the process is now used in roughly 90 percent of new oil and natural gas wells, many are still unfamiliar with how hydraulic fracturing really works.
To answer that all too common question, Energy In Depth has produced a new video to explain what hydraulic fracturing is, how it works in combination with horizontal drilling, and how this process is helping to provide numerous benefits to U.S. consumers in the form of affordable, clean-burning, natural gas.
