- Fracking accounts for half of oil and two-thirds of natural gas production in the U.S.
- Water is limited yet vital to fracking process
- American Energy Partners and its subsidiaries provide solutions
Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is an important drilling method used to extract oil or natural gas from deep shale formations in the Earth. This sophisticated drilling technology has exponentially expanded petroleum and natural gas production in the United States. In fact, fracking accounts for over half of U.S. oil production and two-thirds of natural gas production in the country and makes the U.S. the largest natural gas producer in the world. It is also instrumental in being more energy independent and holding down the cost of these valuable commodities.
The process involves the large use of water, where cracks in and below the Earth’s surface are opened and widened by injecting water, chemicals, and sand at high pressure to release gas and oil. Water is vital to the hydraulic fracking process, and competition for water is fierce. Beyond the public water supply, water is consumed for irrigation, livestock, golf courses and countless other uses.
