Natural gas exploration is the act of drilling and injecting chemicals into gas wells in order to produce gas. Companies drill deep beneath the surface of the earth to extract this gas.
However, this does not come without a process. With each drilling, we release toxic chemicals into the soil, along with waste. It takes nearly 1.8 million gallons of water to complete a fracking, which is the hydraulic fracturing that takes place with drilling.
Up to 600 chemicals are used in fracking fluid, including known carcinogens and toxins. These chemicals and waste cause deep pressure to build up and has actually been linked to possibly cause earthquakes. In Ohio, studies are being conducted on how fracking may have caused the 11 earthquakes they’ve had just since 2011. With 500,000 active gas wells in the country, it’s important to understand whether or not these gas wells are causing massive destruction in their areas. Each gas well can be “fracked” at least 18 times which only just increases the risks to a very dangerous level. Watch this video now to learn more.
