Hydraulic fracturing is a process of mining the underground to obtain new and existing gases and oil wells using a very hot liquid to create small fractures in the formation. The extraction is restricted to some areas where there are large presence of the fossil fuel that have formed over many years.
Gas and oil products are the most reassured assets in the society since they are rare to find and have the most important economic value. It is the most earning profit activity and the producing country can then process it and then export to earn foreign exchange.
The process of extracting the oil and gas from their wells can be done in many different ways.
However, some are convenient enough due to the many factors put into consideration while others do not qualify to the end to be used. Gas and oil wells are located at the bottommost part of the rock layering and accessing it can be difficult if the equipment used is not convenient but the hydraulic fracturing works best. The duration taken to extract using the method is very short and the amount of product extracted is large. One can use any of the methods to extract the oil and gas products which is influenced by the capital and the type of machinery in store.
Extraction can be tiresome since tracing the exact location of the wells is hard but when drilled vertically, it becomes easy to access them which minimizes the amount of time wasted in tracing. It digs straight to the bottom line where shale is located and is enables the operator to extract more gas from each well. The environments surrounding the extraction point are normally ruined by heaping the dugout materials and decomposing them there but with the vertical drilling, no material is removed, some sharp drilling equipment are used and the surrounding place is conserved.
The process is advantageous a lot since it is environmental friendly. It does not cause any pollution at all and there are no physical disruptions from the site making it best suitable to be used. The activity is very technical and has to be operated only at some deigned specified areas for it not to cause disaster on the surrounding thus law and regulations have been put in place to ensure the activity is only done at the right place. All sectors have developed due to the activity that has created market for them. It has created a lot of income for people.
