Hydraulic Fracturing

Hydraulic fracturing has revolutionized the oil and gas industry, allowing for new potential of drilling shale plays across the country. Otherwise known as fracing, the technique involves pumping fluid and proppant into a wellbore so as to fracture the rock deep underground and allow oil and gas to flow into the wellbore and up to the surface. From the Barnett Shale in North Texas to the Eagle Ford in South Texas and Haynesville in East Texas, this technological advancement is causing a new boom for the industry. Not only is it helping our country be less dependent on foreign energy, it is also helping give more Americans jobs.
