Hydrofracturing is a process where a hydraulic pressure is applied to an isolated zone of a borewell to initiate and propagate new fractures and will at the same time clean, sediments or other deposits from existing fractures. As per model studies on an in-situ stress measurements. Hydrofracturing is based on Pascal’s law, which states that “When the hydraulic ressure is applied in any closed body it acts in all directions and is equal at all points”.
