How does drilling impact the land?

By using hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, a single gas well can tap a large area, reducing the need for surface infrastructure.

Horizontal drilling also allows several wells to be drilled from the one surface location.

Once the land at the well site has been restored, a small cleared area remains around the well head.
