Hydraulic Fracturing for Production Optimization

Course Purposes

This course outlines the technical and non-technical factors, from initial design through final flow-back, that control the success of fracture treatments in shale. The course covers the key reservoir properties that must be considered in designing a hydraulic fracture and also covers the latest and emerging advancements in fracturing technology.

Course Objectives:

Participants in the course will gain a better understanding of the:
 
  •   Unique terms and concepts involved in current hydraulic fracturing treatments
  •   Five different technical objectives for creating a hydraulic fracture in shale
  •   Fluid, equipment, proppant and other design options
  •   Common mistakes and misunderstandings in treatment design
  •  Data and concepts required to select the appropriate treatment interval
  •   Methods that are being applied in the current major plays and why they vary by play
  •   Treatment design and calibration field tests
  •   Methods for evaluating a treatment and common evaluation mistakes
  •    Risk and cost management for hydraulic fracturing
