DEEP ISOLATION DOES NOT FRACK

Fracking

The process of injecting liquid at high pressure into subterranean rocks, boreholes, etc. so as to force open existing fissures and extract oil or gas.

Deep Isolation Solution

The Deep Isolation method uses horizontal directional drilling to dispose of nuclear waste.

Deep Isolation’s nuclear waste disposal technology does not involve hydraulic fracturing (fracking) of any kind.

Oil and Gas Extraction

Yes

Oil and gas is extracted as energy from the hole

No

No oil and gas extracted

Injecting High-Pressure Liquids

Yes

3.6 million gallons high-pressure liquid is pumped down the encased hole to release oil or gas

No

Hole is encased and sealed. No high-pressure liquids are used

Rock Fracturing

Yes

Perferator gun punches through casing so that the high-pressure liquid can fracture the rock

No

Waste canisters are inserted into the hole
