Answer ( 1 )


    Fracking is the process of drilling down into the earth before a high-pressure water mixture is directed at the rock to release the gas inside.

    Water, sand and chemicals are injected into the rock at high pressure which allows the gas to flow out to the head of the well.

    The process can be carried out vertically or, more commonly, by drilling horizontally to the rock layer, which can create new pathways to release gas or used to extend existing channels.

    The term fracking refers to how the rock is fractured apart by the high-pressure mixture.
