Before you drill again, find out if
well fracturing is right for you!
Well fracturing, or hydro-fracking, is a process that involves injecting water under high pressure into the bedrock foundation around a well. The purpose is to flush out fine particles and rock fragments from existing bedrock fractures, or to increase the size of existing fractures, resulting in an increased flow of water into the well.
Well fracturing is used to increase the amount of water flow in newly drilled wells that have marginal or inadequate production rates. It is also used on older wells that have lost their recovery rates over time, usually because of mineralization (iron deposits) and incrustation (silt and sediment) of rock fractures.
