Introduction To Fracking

Additionally, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, there are fewer natural gas rigs in operation compared to oil rigs. As of February 2013, there are 1,332 operating crude oil rigs in the United States but only 426 that extract natural gas.

Finally, while both resources provide energy for people around the world, fracking for natural gas is considered more beneficial in some circles because the gas is replacing other potentially more harmful energy sources like coal. Many studies have shown the increased use of natural gas for energy has reduced harmful emissions in the air.
