None of the above
US EPA: Unconventional Natural Gas Production : Hydraulic fracturing is a technique used in "unconventional" gas production. "Unconventional" reservoirs can cost-effectively produce gas only by using a special stimulation technique, like hydraulic fracturing, or other special recovery process and technology. This is often because the gas is highly dispersed in the rock, rather than occurring in a concentrated underground location.
TH : Unlike conventional hydrocarbons that can be sponged out of permeable rocks easily, shale gas is trapped under low permeable rocks. Therefore, a mixture of 'pressurised water, chemicals, and sand' (shale fluid) is required to break low permeable rocks in order to unlock the shale gas reserves.
