Alternate Fracking and Wastewater Treatment Methods

Understanding the Basics of Ohio Geology



The Trenton Limestone:



The Trenton Limestone and accompanying Black River rocks are important in that they serve as the source for much or all hydrocarbon formation in the Appalachian basin.

Too Much Clay? Chill Out. Why Cryogenic Fracturing May Be the Answer
