Aerial View of Illuminated Oil and Gas Drilling Platforms (Stock Footage)

An aerial flyover of an oil and gas drilling platform at sunrise near Denver, Colorado. The drilling rig is using a controversial technique known as hydraulic fracturing or “fracking” to extract oil and natural gas trapped deep within shale formations in the Western United States. The American flag can be seen at the top of the drilling derrick waving in the wind, while roughnecks leave the drilling pad for a shift change.
