Drilling is a way of life in West Texas, but not everyone knows exactly what chemicals go into the ground during the process.

Frac fluid, a combination of sand, water and various chemicals, opens up the oil and natural gas molecules locked in the micro pores of rocks, Ben Shepperd, president of the Permian Basin Petroleum Association said.
