What is Fracking?

One question we’ve been hearing a lot lately is “what is fracking?”

Hydraulic fracturing, hydrofracking or “fracking” is a new technology used by the energy industry to unlock previously inaccessible supplies of domestic oil and clean-burning natural gas.

This “shale” oil and gas, up to a few years ago, was thought to be impossible to recover. But over the past few years fracking, along with horizontal drilling has unlocked this abundant resource.

Along with increasing domestic oil production and unlocking what could be a century’s worth of natural gas, this shale oil and gas is changing the face of America — bringing back manufacturing jobs, creating an abundant source of cheap energy, all while boosting our nation’s economy.

In this exclusive Daily Resource Hunter video series we’ll take a look into the oft-mentioned oil and gas procedure called “fracking”… and show you what it’s all about.
