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.
It is not all regions that are blessed to have the fossil fuels, others may have but in trace that cannot be extracted since it will lead to losses thus the ones that have are very lucky to fetch a lot of income. It is the most earning profit activity and the producing country can then process it and then export to earn foreign exchange.
There are many methods with which gas and oil production can be obtained.
However, some are convenient enough due to the many factors put into consideration while others do not qualify to the end to be used. The extraction done is from the deepest part of the ground and thus the hydraulic fracturing works best on that. The process maximizes the resource used since it facilitates extraction of large quantities over a short period of time. One can use any of the methods to extract the oil and gas products which is influenced by the capital and the type of machinery in store.
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. It digs straight to the bottom line where shale is located and is enables the operator to extract more gas from each well. The economic value is maximized with the vertical drilling since a lot of oil is extracted without much impact on the surface thus conserving it since it is accurate enough to directly trace the location of the wells without making many guesses which finally destroys the surface of the environment.
Hydraulic fracturing works best without interfering with the normal functioning of the other creatures in the environment. There is no any type of pollution caused be it the water bodies, noise and air since the drilling activity is silent and the small noise made cannot go a farther distance where residents are, the effluents released after processing them are well treated together with the gases released. Strict laws and regulations have been passed to avoid destruction of the human life and the creatures by restricting entrance of the extraction sites since any danger can happen at an time and also the extraction of the products are designed only for some areas. Technology has developed because of these activities. The production of oil has made individuals and the society wealthy.
