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

An aerial flyover of an oil and gas drilling platform at sunrise with the Rocky Mountains of Colorado in the background. The platform 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.
