With developments in hydrofracturing (fracking) and horizontal drilling, natural gas exploration began in earnest in the Barnett Shale region of North Texas in the late 1990s. This chapter discusses the process of natural gas development. Much of the physical infrastructure and processes of extraction in this area are located in urban areas, in close proximity to neighbourhood homes and schools.
