Important aspects of hydraulic fracturing will be discussed along with addressing the general process, the terminology, and many of the real-world problems— in a precise format. The overall emphasis is how hydraulic fracturing fits-in with, is impacted by, or impacts geologic concerns, reservoir engineering, and operations. It will provide a general familiarity with fundamentals of the complete hydraulic fracturing process.
Who Should Attend
The course is intended for engineering managers, geologists, geophysicists, reservoir engineers desiring general information about the process, and what it can do for them. It is also intended as a general review for petroleum engineers with knowledge or experience in fracturing, but no current active involvement.
Key Learning Points
- Impact of geologic environment
- Major fracture variables such as creating the fracture you want
- Candidate Selection with discrete “candidate recognition” examples
- Fracturing Materials
- Conceptualise and construct hydraulic fracture by using 2D and 3D models
