Description

Holistic Fracture Diagnostics
 
Since the introduction of the G-function derivative analysis, pre-frac diagnostic injection tests have become a valuable and commonly used technique.  Unfortunately the technique is frequently misapplied or misinterpreted, thus leading to confusion and misdiagnosis of fracturing parameters.  This presentation will demonstrate a consistent method of analysis of the G-function, its derivatives, and its relationship to other diagnostic techniques including square-root(time) and log(DPwf)-log(Dt) plots and their appropriate diagnostic derivatives.  Actual field test examples will be presented for the most common diagnostic curve signatures.   
Please print and bring credit card receipt if paid on-line.
 
Please pre-register if you plan to attend.  Walk in registrations on the day of the meeting will be accepted for a limited number of seats based on the number of pre-registered attendees.  Thank you.
