What Is Fracking?

What Is Fracking?

Hydraulic fracturing, known as fracking, is a process in which water and chemicals are injected into rocks at high pressure to extract gas.

While plans to extract shale gas in the UK have stalled for the last seven years, companies are pushing for exploratory drilling to continue.

Protestors have stopped progress at many sites around the UK and continue to call for all fracking plans to be stopped due to concerns about the environment, particularly drinking water and pollution.
