hydraulic fracturing us

Hydraulic fracturing, commonly known as fracking, is the process of injecting water, sand, and/or chemicals into a well to break up underground bedrock to free up oil or gas reserves. The USGS monitors the environmental impact of this practice across the country, from potential earthquakes to degraded groundwater quality

  • What is hydraulic fracturing? - USGS
    What is hydraulic fracturing? - USGS

    Hydraulic fracturing is the process of injecting wells with water, sand, and chemicals at very high pressure. This process creates fractures in deeply buried rocks to allow for the extraction of oil and natural gas as well as geothermal energy. USGS scientists discuss the opportunities and impact associated with hydraulic fracturing

    Oct 21, 2020 Natural gas plays a key role in our Nation’s clean energy future. Embedded in underground formations, natural gas—as well as oil— is often extracted using a method called hydraulic fracturing. In hydraulic fracturing, fluids are injected at high pressures into the ground, creating cracks in the underground formation that release natural gas or oil to the surface
