Many gas formations, such as the Marcellus Shale, exist several thousand feet below the surface in higher pressure and temperature environments. Hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, is a common method for extracting natural gas from these formations. Fracking uses the process of injecting millions of gallons of a mixture made of sand, water, and chemical additives into shale formations at high pressures. This injection causes the shale to fracture and release trapped gases. After the fr...
