Fracking

Hydraulic fracturing (also called fracking or sometimes fraccing; in this Technical Note the terms are used synonymously) is a way of extracting gas (and sometimes oil) from shale rock. Both terms refer to the injection of water, sand and chemicals into the rock at high pressure to break the shale and release the gas, a process sometimes called well stimulation.
