2. What products are obtained with fracking?

Through fracking or hydraulic fracturing, shale gas and shale oil is obtained. Shale gas is like conventional natural gas that has been used in homes, industry, commerce and vehicles. Natural gas is composed of between 90% and 95% of methane, whose contribution to the greenhouse effect is 21 times greater than that of CO2, although its 220 times lower in the atmosphere. Shale oil is like conventional oil. The difference between the two shale products with their traditional pairs is how they are trapped in the rocks, at depths that can exceed three kilometers, as well as the unconventional technology necessary for their extraction.

Fracking fever, a real threat to Paris Agreement

The failure of the Paris Agreement would be the failure of Homo sapiens. If we do not reverse the increase in global warming and we do not support sustainability on our planet, we will all be losers. There are clear indications that we are going in a opposite direction to the 2015 agreements, as can be seen in this paper. The increasing fever of the fracking, due to the cheapening of the processes of extraction…

Fracking or hydraulic fracturing

Fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, is an unconventional method of extracting oil and gas that requires vertical and horizontal drilling at great depths. The first commercial hydraulic fracturing was achieved as recently as 1998. Fracking is a very controversial technology since it prolongs the use of fossil-fuel hydrocarbons…
