WHAT IS FRACKING??

Fracking is another term for hydraulic fracturing; witch is the forcing open of fissures in subterranean rocks by introducing liquid at high pressure, like extract oil or gas.

Personal Opinion

* I think that hydraulic fracking is good because


1.) It makes it give people the opportunity to produce oil and natural gas in places where conventional technologies are ineffecctive.


2.) It opens up access to massive supplies of clean-durning natural gas (from deposits of shale.) and oil.


3.) It is providing abundant energy and building local economies.


4.) Has provided tax revenues to the government.


5.) It created many much-needed high-paying American jobs.


6.) The positive ripple effect increased oil and natural gas shale development .

Marcellus Shale

Marcellus shale is a type of sedimentary rock that is found in the northeastern United States, from New York State to eastern Tennessee. It developed in a shallow sea during Devonian times, 380 million years ago, in a region called the Appalachian basin. As a sedimentary rock, it developed from pressure acting on microscopic rock fragments.
