Hydraulic Fracture Modeling delivers all the pertinent technology and solutions in one product to become the go-to source for petroleum and reservoir engineers. Providing tools and approaches, this multi-contributed reference presents current and upcoming developments for modeling rock fracturing including their limitations and problem-solving applications. Fractures are common in oil and gas reservoir formations, and with the ongoing increase in development of unconventional reservoirs, more petroleum engineers today need to know the latest technology surrounding hydraulic fracturing technology such as fracture rock modeling. There is tremendous research in the area but not all located in one place. Covering two types of modeling technologies, various effective fracturing approaches and model applications for fracturing, the book equips today’s petroleum engineer with an all-inclusive product to characterize and optimize today’s more complex reservoirs. Offers understanding of the details surrounding fracturing and fracture modeling technology, including theories and quantitative methods Provides academic and practical perspective from multiple contributors at the forefront of hydraulic fracturing and rock mechanics Provides today’s petroleum engineer with model validation tools backed by real-world case studies

Hydraulic Fracture Modeling in Naturally Fractured Reservoirs

Hydraulic fracturing of horizontal wells is one of the key technological breakthroughs that has led to the shale revolution. Hydraulic fracturing models are used to engineer hydraulic fracture design and optimize production. Typically, hydraulic fracturing models treat hydraulic fractures as planar, bi-wing fractures. However, recent core-through investigations have suggested that

Mechanics of Hydraulic Fracturing

Revised to include current components considered for today’s unconventional and multi-fracture grids, Mechanics of Hydraulic Fracturing, Second Edition explains one of the most important features for fracture design — the ability to predict the geometry and characteristics of the hydraulically induced fracture. With two-thirds of the world’s oil and

Hydraulic Fracture Modeling with Finite Volumes and Areas

In Chapter 1, a finite volume-based arbitrary fracture propagation model is used to simulate fracture growth and geomechanical stresses during hydraulic fracture treatments. Single-phase flow, poroelastic displacement, and in situ stress tensor equations are coupled within a poroelastic reservoir domain. Stress analysis is used to identify failure initiation that proceeds by

Advanced Hydraulic Fracture Modeling

In the effort to create new technology to enhance our ability to retrieve hydrocarbons, the technique of hydraulic fracturing has shown to be extremely beneficial. This involves pumping fluids at high pressures and high rates to induce and propagate fractures near the wellbore to stimulate production in otherwise low permeability

Hydraulic Fracture Optimization Using Hydraulic Fracture and Reservoir Modeling in the Piceance Basin  Colorado

Hydraulic fracturing is an important stimulation method for producing unconventional gas reserves. Natural fractures are present in many low-permeability gas environments and often provide important production pathways for natural gas. The production benefit from natural fractures can be immense, but it is difficult to quantify. The Mesaverde Group in the

Mathematical Modeling and Simulation Analysis of Hydraulic Fracture Propagation in Three layered Poro elastic Media

Hydraulic fracturing plays a pivotal role in the enhancement of oil and gas production recovery from low permeability reservoirs. The process of hydraulic fracturing entails the generation of a fracture by pumping fluids blended with special chemicals and proppants into the payzone at high injection rates and pressures to extend

3 D Modeling of Interaction Between a Hydraulic Fracture and Multiple Natural Fractures Using Finite Element Analysis

A three-layered, 3-D geo-mechanical model was developed using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software (ABAQUS) to simulate single stage hydraulic fracturing treatment in a synthetic fractured model based on available shale information from literature. The main objectives of this study were- (i) to investigate the interaction between a hydraulic fracture (HF)

Advances in Hydraulic Fracture Simulation   Dynamic and Quasi static Analysis

Hydraulic fracturing (HF) is an effective technique for permeability enhancement of conventional and unconventional reservoirs. HF is performed by injecting a fluid (usually water-based), sand, and chemicals into a formation under high pressure in order to induce damage and improve the interconnectivity of the fracture network through reopening of natural

Modeling Hydraulic Fractures Using Microseismic Events

Advancements in hydraulic fracturing technology have enabled the development of unconventional reservoirs. Hydraulic fractures increase the total surface area of the wellbore, which leads to an increase in production rate. One way to evaluate the success of hydraulic fracturing jobs is to detect microseismic events during fracturing. Mapping microseismic events
