Industry Developing Super Fracking Techniques

Like Fracking? You'll Love 'Super Fracking'
By David Wethe on January 19, 2012
Bloomburg Business Week
Few energy industry practices have sparked more controversy than hydraulic fracking. First, wells are drilled horizontally below the surface, allowing a single bore or pathway to reach vertical pockets of oil and natural gas trapped between formations of shale and other rock. Then high-pressure jets of water, sand, and chemicals are pumped into the ground to create fissures through the rock so oil can seep out and be retrieved. Regulators, environmentalists, and academics are studying whether the practice can damage the environment.

Undeterred, oil services companies including Baker Hughes (BHI) and Schlumberger (SLB) are continuing their quest to devise ways to create longer, deeper cracks in the earth to release more oil and gas. These companies are no longer content to frack—they want to super frack.

I'm no geologist, but isn't "normal" fracking bad enough? Aren't we tinkering with the support beams a bit here?

Studying - doesn't that mean they are still learning. What happens if they find out it's too late and harm has been done?

And super amount of dumb comments from people who are uneducated about the process....I have mixed emotions, but I have no right to bitch as I know where the source comes from that powers this computer and heats my house etc. So don't be a hypocrite Mr and Mrs consumer....

Yeah, you super dumb people. 8:11 is right!

We use electricity, how dare we question how we garner it?!

We are God fearing people around here, none of that free thinking allowed. If Jesus didn't like fracking he would come down from the clouds on his lunch break and put a stop to it!

If you can't separate the concept of needing energy from the concept of choosing how to gather it from the multitude of energy sources on this planet, you might want to be careful painting other posts with "super, dumb and uneducated"

And, 811, we do have a right to bitch, it's the first right actually.

And we aren't hypocrites for asking questions about industrial practices they have legally sealed the books on (for some reason, probably so we all won't be able to see how good and healthy it is for everyone)

I have to crap every day, doesn't mean I should be silent when they want to put a waste plant next to my house. And it doesn't make me a hypocrite when I object.

Are you familiar with the term "useful idiot"?

It's the term the guys getting rich off of our state lands and the fuels under it use when describing the local rubes they conned into letting them rape and pillage their region.

At least the Alaskans get a sweetheart deal. Corbett saw to it they could come in, take everything and leave nothing. AND YOU NOT ONLY VOTED FOR HIM, YOU'LL DO IT AGAIN.

Again, useful idiot.

If it is ok to poision your neighbor to get gas, then it is ok to send young men and woman over seas to die for oil.

Just saying.
