Access this publication

The rise in hydrofracking operations to extract natural gas has attracted increased attention concerning the safety and environmental impact of the drilling process.


And despite its potential contributions to the US energy supply, hydrofracking is controversial because of the potential risks to the environment and communities where wells are located.


This publication offers an overview of the hydrofracking process, and public and regulatory concerns around it. The paper also describes damage scenarios, claims and other issues, and includes an underwriter's checklist.
