When it comes to hydraulic fracturing, also know as fracking, water is the number one issue.
Fracking is now used in nine out of ten natural gas wells in the United States, where millions of gallons of water, sand and chemicals are pumped underground to break apart the rock and release the gas.
As the Oil & Gas industry refines its techniques and drills longer wells, the amount of water used for each well is also climbing. The biggest challenge to future development is simply getting access to water.
Xylem not only provides pumps, but also designs the systems and piping, installs the equipment, breaks it down and moves it to the next location. With the need for water in fracking, it's important to work with a partner like Xylem.
