fracture already exists in the bedrock. What is
actually happening is the existing fractures are
either really small or they are plugged with
sediment. Hydro-Fracking cleans out these fractures
then actually wears away the sides of the fractures
making them larger. More water is then allowed
to flow into the well!
Pressure or Volume, which is more important?
Hydro-Fracking process consists of two stages, the
"break" stage and the "development" stage. The
pressure is needed to "break" the well. Once the
well has "broken" then it needs to be developed.
This requires a large amount of flow. The more water
you feed it, the greater the result.
