Description

Course Description

This course presents the fundamentals of fracturing pressure analysis. This includes design parameters that can be determined, uses and limitations of such analysis for on-site design, and field examples. Sessions include real world examples from a variety of environments, from "tight" gas to high permeability, offshore, and "frac-pack" treatments.

Topics covered include: In Situ Stresses, Fracture Geometry,Closure Pressure Determination, Bottomhole Treating Pressure Interpretation, Pressure Declline Analysis, Fluid Efficiency, Fluid Loss Coefficient, Pressure vs. Fracture Height Growth - Stress Profile, Proppant/Fluid Scheduling from Pressure Decline Data

Who Should Attend

This course is of interest to petroleum engineers involved, directly or indirectly, in the design and evaluation of hydraulic fracturing treatments. It would be beneficial for participants to have a basic understanding of hydraulic fracturing and well completion concepts.
