The original fracking research was done on the government dime.

Note that the original research was paid for by the federal government, its only its application that was private. Note that the federal program was the Eastern Gas shales research project. In 1977 the DOE pioneered the process. So the tech did come from the feds, so while the government did not do the implementation it did the risky work to prove the technology out.
