  • ISSN : 1021-2000



Artificial formation fracturing of rock formations to increase petroleum yield from boreholes has recently become a widely employed procedure in the United States. The author has adapted the principles of the treatment to effect increased water production from boreholes in South Africa. In this paper, the method of fracturing and results of the treatment are briefly discussed.
