Hydraulic Fracturing Applications

Course Objective

  • Design hydraulic fracture treatments for typical field situations
  • Apply the concepts of well stimulation by hydraulic fracturing to various
  • types of reservoir conditions to optimize well productivity
  • Recognize opportunities for substantial production improvement by
  • application of effective hydraulic fracturing
  • Gather pertinent well data and information to plan, design, implement,
  • and evaluate fracturing treatments for all types of reservoirs
  • Realize the strengths and limitations of hydraulic fracture theory as it relates
  • to field applications of fracturing
  • Become a participant in each fracturing treatment rather than just a technical observer

Who Can Benefit

  • Production, reservoir and drilling engineers as well as others who need a better understanding of fracturing applications
