Hydraulic fracturing, also referred to as fracking, was first used commercially in 1949. To date, hydraulic fracturing has been performed more than 1 million times in every oil and gas-producing nation in the country. It is estimated that of the existing wells in the United States, hydraulic fracturing has been performed in more than 70% of them.
