Spires of light from hydraulic fracturing wells dwarf the steeple of East Point Church near Liberty, PA early on the morning of January 18, 2013. Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a natural gas drilling process that involves boring to depths of a mile or more, turning the well shaft horizontally and drilling the body of the well, then pumping it with high pressure fluids which split the rock, releasing higher quantities of natural gas than what is available with conventional drilling. Crews have been working around the clock  to put gas wells online in the Marcells Shale, even in below freezing temperatures, as Pennsylvania's natural gas industry booms. Fracking, due to health and safety concerns, was under moratorium in New York and New Jersey with some local municipalities passing individual bans that prohibit the process.
