ABSTRACT
The article discusses the technique of fracking, which involves injecting fluid at very high pressure into a well used to produce oil, water or natural gas. Fracking has its most significant application in natural gas production. The injections of high-pressure fluid produce tiny fissures in underground rock, which allow the gas to seep out. The technique is said to keep natural gas cheap for a long period.
