The course takes a practical approach to the applications of hydraulic fracturing. Fracturing technology benefits and limitations in all types of sandstone and carbonate reservoirs are explained. Fracture modeling is used as a tool to demonstrate how modeling software can be used effectively in practical applications. All aspects of the planning, designing, and implementation of fracturing treatments are covered. In addition to the technical presentation, the course contains many practical exercises and class problems based on case histories. You will take home a fresh approach to hydraulic fracturing, eager to select viable candidates for more effective fracturing applications.
