There are many controversies about whether we should use fracking or not. Fracking, hydraulic fracturing is the process of injecting liquid at high pressure into subterranean rocks, to force open existing fissures and extract oil or gas. Some people say that fracking is dangerous because it can leak into our underground water reserves. Other people say that fracking is good because it makes extracting oil or gas extremely easy and efficient. Both sides are not wrong because there is 20-40% of oil still left in the ground when the fracking is done, and because fracking is the easiest way to extract oil and gas.

However, I have met many people that dislike the process very much. Below one will find the answer to what fracking is, why some people think that it is important to use fracking, and what about the process concerns so many people. Fracking is also known as hydraulic fracturing. “Hydraulic fracturing is the process of creating fissures in underground formations to allow natural gas to flow.” (Barnett Shale Energy Education Council) Fracking extracts oil and gas from layers of rock formations deep beneath the earth’s surface. Sometimes, the wells can be thousands of feet deep.
