Fracking has no place in our communities - it may poison our water, increase likelihood of earthquakes, depress our economy, not to mention a myriad of yet-undiscovered consequences. For a great overview of the hydraulic fracturing technology, commonly known as fracking, and its impact on Durham please read the report…
Nos EUA, água foi contaminada em áreas próximas a jazidas de gás xisto. Pesquisa foi publicada nesta segunda no periódico ‘PNAS’
Proibido em varios países da Europa, o polêmico método é condenado por oferecer riscos ao meio ambiente. A ENMC garante monitorar o tema, mas as ONGs alertam para o perigo de contaminação da água e do solo.
O aumento espetacular da exploração de gás de xisto nos Estados Unidos preocupa os defensores do meio ambiente, que denunciam seu impacto na água e no ar, como é o caso no pequeno povoado de Waynerburg, na Pensilvânia (leste).
In the picture above, dating from 1947, Stanolind Oil conducted the first experimental fracturing in the Hugoton field located in southwestern Kansas. The treatment utilized napalm (gelled gasoline) and sand from the Arkansas River.
Hydraulic fracturing is a technique used to crack rock underground, usually for the purpose of extracting oil or gas.
As with conventional oil and gas extraction fracking companies need to go through a series of operational stages to reach the point of producing oil or gas. While definitions of these stages can be quite complex, for drilling at least, these stages can be simplified into exploration, appraisal and production.
