This course is designed for those involved in all aspects of well stimulation. To be better able to make decisions it is important to have a basic understanding of the types of formations and basic reservoir properties with which we deal. For this reason, time is spent in the early portion of the course setting the geological and reservoir property stage for vertical, horizontal, and multilateral wells prior to developing the basic formation damage, acidizing, and hydraulic fracturing concepts. The course includes acidizing and fracturing quality control, conducting the treatment, monitoring pressures, and other critical parameters during and after the treatment.
