    Hydraulic fracturing is a key component of the successful development model for shale gas plays. This paper will review the evolution of hydraulic fracturing, including environmental and regulatory considerations related to development of the Fayetteville Shale play. Different methods of fracturing such as hydraulic test on intact or preexisting fractures, sleeve fracturing, and hydro jacking are designed to study the behavior of principal stresses by means of hydraulic concepts (Baumg¨artner and Rummel, ). Several studies have been carried out on hydraulic fracturing methods in Iran. Ajalloeian et al. During this presentation, the focus will be on a discussion of the critical geomechanical concepts and ‘accepted’ knowledge about hydraulic fracturing in shales as related to: natural fracture behavior, stress shadows and the geomechanical effects .   This video shows you how the formation of fractures responds to stress. If you want to do this experiment by your own you will find a video .

Hydraulic fracturing, known as “fracking,” is a process during which producers inject a fluid consisting of water, sand, and chemical additives deep into the ground in order to free resources. The use of hydraulic fracturing to open underground natural gas formations has a low risk of triggering earthquakes.

While the fracking itself causes tiny ‘micro’ earthquakes, these are virtually undetectable at the surface. If a well is fracked near an active fault, larger earthquakes can be caused, although they are still small.
