    Abstract :

    Hydraulic fracturing is a controversial oil and gas extraction technique developed in the late 1940s to gain access to fossil energy deposits previously inaccessible to drilling operations. Hydraulic fracturing also known as fracking has played an important role in America’s oil and natural gas production for the past 60 years. Roughly 35,000 wells are estimated to be processed with the hydraulic fracturing method. Natural gas consists of mainly methane and ethane, while butane and propane make up the remaining elements. The process,
