It can be done safely, it can be done cost effectively, and it can deliver economic gains unlike anything we've ever seen. In return, I want to see an end to our reliance on foreign oil and significantly lower prices for gas, oil, and energy. Too bad those things will never happen though.
In other words, we have the potential to do great things as a result of this technology, but greed will ensure we maintain the status quo and keep fleecing the public.
I worked for a company, a division of Dow Chemical that was later purchased by Schlumberger, that fracked wells in Ohio in the early 1980's. In addition to the traditional water-based system, liquid nitrogen was also beginning to be used. And yes, we even did one experimental well with CO2.
There are 2 types of oil/gas wells. Those that have been fracked and those that will be.
It is not fracking that has made shale formations economically viable. It is horizontal drilling that has unlocked the oil/gas in these formations.
gimme a solution or alternative form of energy. Electric is not it....cause you also gotta tell me where the electricity comes from....and a hint .....it aint from the wall socket. LOL
Why let tree-hugging liberals and Muslims control OUR gas prices?
And YOU can too, just buy stock in these companies. Don't hate fracking, embrace it!!!!!!
I mean really, what the frack, man?
