Facts on Fracking

Graham Marshall - Friday, May 11, 2012

At the Risk Tool Box, we make no apologies for our belief in the benefits to be found by society from the development of unconventional sources of hydrocarbons.

When it comes to coal seam gas, shale gas and unconventional oil, these benefits have come about because of two newly developed and wonderful technologies - these being - directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing.

Enclosed here is a fact sheet that addresses the science lying behind unconventional natural gas production, with a particular focus on the responsible development of natural gas from dense shale formations thousands of feet below the earth’s surface.

The exploitation of unconventional gas and oil gives us efficient access to vast new supplies of cleaner energy, resulting in more jobs, less dependence on foreign oil and a cleaner, smarter energy future for Australia

Having worked first-hand in the unconventional business for the last 5-6 years, we'll all in favour of directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing.
