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. Gas and oil extraction cannot be done anyhow, many factors have to be put into consideration to ensure that the place has fossil fuel that forms the oil and gas thus avoiding destroying the environment for no reason.
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.
There are many methods with which gas and oil production can be obtained.
The many methods of extraction work differently making others to be preferred the most to the rest. 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. It facilitates production in large quantities over a short period of time. 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. Shale formations are beneath the underground which can only be accessed by drilling and by that all the adjacent environment does not need to be dug destroying it and by drilling it vertically, reaching every corner of the wells is possible enabling total extraction of the available products. When drilling and fracturing are constantly done at the same position in attempting to trace the position of the oil well, damages are likely to be caused from the surface thus this vertical drilling minimizes the impact on the surface by aiming directly to the wells and fetching large amounts of the products which enables it to increase the economic viability of the well.
The most treasured mining activities in the society are the ones that can do proper work without interfering with the living of people. The process is safe enough to allow conducive environment for the living creatures to continue operating normally making it environmental friendly. The government is the only body to carry out the extraction activity. Technology has developed because of these activities. The production of oil has made individuals and the society wealthy.
