@PSUWayneCounty What is mixed with the water other than sand prior to pumping? What is in the water after it has been forced into the well?
Good fracing vid. Great process. Saving this country as O SAMBO is trying to kill it. Good paying jobs for good hard working men and women. These green fucks are so full of ducus.
This is the future of American energy.
@PSUWayneCounty Where were the 800,000 gallons of water drawn from? From what water supply?
everyone moaning about the frac/acid operations, think about this for a minute. Do you drive a car to work? do you heat your house with either natural gas or oil? where does that oil come from? Do you want to pay up the ass for such products and take away jobs like the one I have from American or Canadian citizens? just think about that for a minute before you bitch and moan about the procedures that go into drilling and retrieving oil. 
@JakeEvilclown Hmmm why don't you go hug a tree rufus....you're a clown...everyones always gotta bitch about something they know nothing about..this is why this country is almost worthless because ppl like you. Since you specialize in being a clown go look up some of those vids and comment on them.
yeah lets frac all over and poison our food and water. then die 
Looks like a nice operation considering the elements you have to work in. I can tell there are many who comment and have never been involved in the 'working in the elements'. It's ok, you worry about chemicals and amounts of water, you ever look at your parents water bill, I doubt that. You have no clue, nor any right to comment on this. Try science, no don't bother, that would be a waste of resources too. We'll import the Chinese to make up for our scientific loss here. No sense in wasti

Water is pumped down the hole at about 3000 gpm.

Where I am from in Western NY, many wells and underground water supplies have been affected by well fracturing. The industry can make all of the claims that it cares to, but the people who live the aftermath never seem to get the same amount of "air time" as the energy companies...........I wonder why that is??
