    The petroleum industry has begun to shift into more challenging circumstances in which to drill, complete, and produce hydrocarbons from the well which has largely been due to depletion of conventional reserves present onshore overtime. In the U.S., the industry has particularly seen a gradual shift to development of unconventional shale plays, including the Eagle Ford or Bakken formations, and deepwater assets which are flanked by salt deposits. In the latter operating circumstances, which will

    Nour Alqatami Hydraulic Fracturing Fracking process is a type of drilling water beneath the earth surface in order to access to natural gas and oil. A huge drill is used to pass through many layers of earth and rock that lie between us as the natural gas. The mixture is water, sand and certain chemicals forced into the rock at high pressure in order to force the gas out to where they can collect it. The drill can be driven into the earth either vertically or horizontally. Fracking began as an experiment
