Fracking is the process of extracting oil or natural gas from shale rock. Water, sand and chemicals are injected into the rock at high pressure which fractures the rock and allows the oil or gas to flow out to a well. While fracking has significantly boosted oil production, there are environmental concerns that the process is contaminating groundwater.
the idea oil and gases are bad for the environmental is true but the outcome of getting rid of oil and gases would change everything and i think that gases like petrol are awesome because they run cars and ships but getting rid of it entirely is impossible and not the right timing. maybe in 30 years we can have electric powered ships instead of petrol powered ships
Yes, if there will be zero pollution of ground water and aquifers. Marine use only, as a precaution to avoid human water source pollution. Exploration Companies should post a truly massive bond 'up front' (in gold, not US dollars) for any required capping/sealing remedial work.
