Photo gallery: ‘Fracking’ aids extraction, raises environmental eyebrows

Source: Denver Business Journal - Frack Fluids

Source: Denver Business Journal - Gelled "frack" fluid dangles in mid-air above a cup during a test that water temperature and sand-water-chemical mixtures are correct. The test is performed before and during every hydraulic fracturing job.

It is suggested that you read this article available at the Denver Business Journal to see “fracking” up close.  The article shows pictures from Natural Gas wells being drilled in the Denver Basin by Encana Oil and Gas. These pictures are from a natural gas site in the DJ basin. This is NOT a Niobrara story, however the fracking technology used is identical to that used for the Niobrara Play and is of interest. Make sure you go to the Denver Business Journal and look through the Photo Gallery to see the process up close.
