The process in which oil wells are dug and gas well beneath the ground at the shale formations is the Hydraulic Process. It is only done at some specified location and areas where there are large amounts of fossil fuel.
Gas and oil products are the most reassured assets in the society since they are rare to find and have the most important economic value. It is the most earning profit activity and the producing country can then process it and then export to earn foreign exchange.
Gas and oil production can be extracted through many ways.
The many methods of extraction work differently making others to be preferred the most to the rest. Hydraulic fracturing is the most convenient one since the gas being produced is from far deep the underground, on the shale formations. The duration taken to extract using the method is very short and the amount of product extracted is large. Fracturing can be done horizontally or vertically depending on the amount of capital available and the machinery equipment that are there.
Extraction can be tiresome since tracing the exact location of the wells is hard but when drilled vertically, it becomes easy to access them which minimizes the amount of time wasted in tracing. The vertical extraction makes it possible to extract all the available oil and gases from the well since the drilling machine is able to reach the bottom of the well and at all corners. When drilling and fracturing are constantly done at the same position in attempting to trace the position of the oil well, damages are likely to be caused from the surface thus this vertical drilling minimizes the impact on the surface by aiming directly to the wells and fetching large amounts of the products which enables it to increase the economic viability of the well.
The process is advantageous a lot since it is environmental friendly. The process is safe enough to allow conducive environment for the living creatures to continue operating normally making it environmental friendly. The activity is very technical and has to be operated only at some deigned specified areas for it not to cause disaster on the surrounding thus law and regulations have been put in place to ensure the activity is only done at the right place. All sectors have developed due to the activity that has created market for them. It has created a lot of income for people.
