Animated explanation of hydraulic fracturing

Curious how a fracking well is drilled?

I’ve been wondering about a few things.  Like how to drill horizontally, how to break open the dense rock, and how to prevent leakage.

Superb animated video from Voyager Oil & Gas answers a lot of my questions:

Horizontal Drilling.

If you know as little about drilling as I do but are curious, you’ll enjoy the 6½ minute video.

Hat tip – who else? Mark Perry.
