The fracturing process uses a mixture of fluids comprised almostentirely (99.5%) of water and sand. The remaining materials, usedto help deliver the water down the wellbore, are typically found andused around the house. The average fracturing operation utilizesfewer than 12 of these components, according to the Ground WaterProtection Council — not 596.
