Hydraulic Fracturing Engineering and Software Solution, for Your Most Challenging Reservoirs.

This 5-day course emphasizes the multi-disciplinary nature of hydraulic fracturing, covering the “Reservoir Engineering” aspects, integrated with the “Fracture Mechanics” aspects, and coupled with “Operational” considerations. This integration is absolutely necessary in order to present how to recognize opportunities for fracturing from hard rock tight gas, to offshore “frac-pack” completions, to multi-fractured horizontal shale wells. Also covered is how to estimate required data for planning and preparing preliminary job designs, how to design, perform, and analyze pre-frac tests, and finally how to arrive at an “optimum” final design. Along with an Introduction to Fracturing, the course covers Reservoir Response, Rock Stresses, Fracture Geometry, Fracture Pressure Analysis, Fracture Fluid & Proppant Selection, Multi – Fractured Horizontal Wells, and Field Application & Quality Control.

A complete set of course materials and lunch is included in the Hydraulic Fracturing course.

*Participants will need to bring a laptop with Microsoft Excel to each day of this course*

This 3-day course is designed for engineers involved in detailed design and analysis of hydraulic fracture treatments. A good understanding of, and familiarity with, fracturing fundamentals, materials selection (fluids/ proppant), and applications is required. Emphasis is placed on analyzing fracturing pressure data during pumping, and during the subsequent pressure decline, and use of this data to recognize common problems.

A wide range of real field problems will be tackled in the practical sessions (which comprise more than 50% of the course)

The “workshop” format for this course uses examples of actual problem wells from various environments. These examples place emphasis on 3-D fracture modeling for analysis/design, and the sessions are conducted using NSI’s fracture simulators StimPlan. The course includes NSI’s comprehensive manual, augmented with special material discussing fracturing in complex formations. This also includes multiple, detailed, solved case histories ranging from Australian tight gas wells, to Gulf of Mexico “frac-packs”, to North Sea tip screenout (TSO) treatments.

Practical applications during the week are built on complete, detailed, real field problems. This format, used very successfully in other courses, enables participants to work with many real field examples and thus gain a deeper understanding of the subject in a short time.

Participants are encouraged to bring data sets from their own fractured (or fracture candidate) wells for use in the practical sessions.
