I could never imagine working for that Fracking company!

Fracking (also often referred to as hydraulic fracturing or hydrofracking) is a process stimulation procedure first used by the oil and gas industry in 1947 at a well in the Hugoton gas field located in Kansas. Hydraulic fracturing was first used commercially in 1949. The premise is simple, fluids are forced under pressure into the formation surrounding the wellbore. Once those fluids reach the fracture gradient of the surrounding rock the rock parts and fluid continues to flow further from the wellbore. The fluid continues to propagate the fracture, and eventually proppant is added to the fluid stream in order to keep the fractures from naturally healing once the wellbore pressure is released. Once the process is finished the now propped fractures provide conduits for fluids to flow to the wellbore.

Putting it simply, it`s a process whereby fluid is used,under pressure,to obtain more gas and oil from the ground at an accelerated rate.

The downside, studies have shown that the Fracking process may cause air and water contamination to the extreme that your health and mine may be affected. As stated...the study reiterates earlier research which shows that prolonged exposure to airborne petroleum hydrocarbons causes “an increased risk of eye irritation and headaches, asthma symptoms, acute childhood leukemia, acute myelogenous leukemia, and multiple myeloma.

Please take a few minutes to read more about those FRACKERS! I would never work for those Frackers anyway. For one thing, I don`t agree with their Fracking methods. As far as I`m concerned,they can go FRACK themselves. How dare they Frack with my air and my water. Who the FRACK do they think they are,GOD?
