Chemical additives used in hydraulic fracking

Chemical Additives Used in Fracking

Hydraulic fracturing, commonly known as fracking, develops oil and gas wells by injecting water, sand, and chemicals under high pressure into the bedrock. This fractures the rock, increasing the size of existing fractures and connecting one or more fractures together.The theory behind hydraulic fracturing is that this process allows access to natural gas which would be inaccessible by other [...]
