Fracking: The Operations and Environmental Consequences of Hydraulic Fracturing (Energy Sustainability)

Buy
Hydraulic fracturing (also known as fracking, fracing, or worse) of rock deep beneath the surface to release petroleum product has become a contentious subject across the globe. This practice is not to be confused with drilling or extraction. Fracking is the process of using fluid power to fracture rock to release gas (and sometimes crude oil). It is not drilling per se, although drilling must be done to establish a well in order to pump fluid that fractures rock to release product. Certain countries have actually outlawed the practice of hydraulic fracturing, claiming that ground water and air pollution increase due to the practice and that the comfort of life is adversely affected. Legitimate concerns are always available, and examples to purport a concerned view are magnified. The media plays a large role in acting as a magnifier instead of an information conduit. While a magnifying glass produces a very close examination, it suf- fers blurred vision when used to examine the landscape. The intent of this work is to provide a correct and balanced view of fractur- ing underground rock with fluids in order to release a product to produce energy. The concept of using water to do work is nothing new. Pumping fluid below ground in order to fracture rock in order to release gaseous petroleum is a new process. The practice is done with surprising precision as well as environmental concern, yet it is interesting how the public reacts to the practice in relation to other techniques used throughout the world. This work will explore the materials used as well as the concerns most common to the practice.
