Hydraulic fracturing is a government-regulated technology used safely for more than 60 years to recover shale or tight natural gas that is trapped in deep underground rock. In British Columbia, water used for natural gas development is regulated by the BC Oil & Gas Commission (BCOGC). Industry is focusing on increasing use of alternatives and reducing the amount of surface water and fresh groundwater used in hydraulic fracturing.
