Overview

Hydraulic fracturing is a well stimulation process that is becoming increasingly common. Although the idea is simple to understand, the terminology and processes are more complex. An understanding of the fracturing process can help companies increase production from wells while avoiding liability resulting from environmental damage. When problems do arise, understanding what causes the problems is critical to developing cement repair plans, or other remediation plans. An understanding of the issues around water use and re-use will help to manage the expense associated with water management.
