What is Methane Migration?

Methane migration refers to the process of methane gas deposits migrating from deep underground to the surface. Methane migration leads to methane-polluted drinking water, flammable faucets, and more environmental concerns.

Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) is often used as a means to access natural gas reserves in Pennsylvania. One of the potential hazards of this fracking is methane migration. While methane deposits will naturally move to the surface over centuries, the fracking process accelerates the process.
