What is it?

The process of drilling and injecting fluid into the ground at a high pressure in order to fracture shale rocks to release natural gas inside.

Why is it important?

Hydraulic fracturing is essential for the production of natural gas and oil from shale formations, and with advances in fracking technology it is becoming easier and more accessible to access natural gas. Natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel and releases the least amount of carbon emissions into the air compared to other fossil fuels, coal and oil.
