Ali Daneshy has more than 40 years experience in the technology and operations of hydraulic fracturing.  His company, Daneshy Consultants International, is heavily involved in providing training and consulting services in the areas of well completions and hydraulic fracturing.  He is also an adjunct professor at The University of Houston, where he teaches a graduate course in hydraulic fracturing.  He has over 50 technical publications on the subject of hydraulic fracturing.  He received a mining engineering degree from The University of Tehran and MS and PhD degrees in mining engineering (rock mechanics) from The Universities of Minnesota and Missouri-Rolla.

Full Description

The relatively close well and fracture spacing used in the completion of many horizontal wells, and the push to create transverse fractures are suited for high short-term well productivity.  This has resulted in a high frequency of communication between offset horizontal wells.  Some experts believe that the creation of a network of interconnected fractures is desirable for achieving higher well productivity.  This presentation takes a closer view of our present completion strategies and their impact on short and long-term reservoir productivity.
