When you hear the word “drilling” you might imagine giant oil rigs or massive industrial machines boring wells into the ground. Both of these images are partially rooted in truth, as are the connotations of environmental disruption and danger. Of course, the latter aspect of these ideas doesn’t have to be true if drilling is done responsibly. The following are three risks that can be avoided by drilling responsibly and safely.
Disrupting Wildlife Habitats
One of the most common complaints of environmentalists is the likelihood that drilling will disrupt natural wildlife and destroy their habitats. Though this is possible, it is also entirely possible to avoid such a problem and drill responsibly while protecting nearby wildlife. Disrupting wildlife can disrupt an entire ecosystem and wreak havoc, so it is in the best interest of drillers to maintain the surrounding environment as much as possible.
