The course discusses the completion of wells in shale formations using hydraulic fracturing technique. The course revisits the concepts of fracturing in sandstones (models, fluids and proppants), introduces the concepts related to fracturing shale formations - geomechanics of shales, models for hydraulic fractures in shales, complexity of hydraulic fractures - and discusses the main concerns related to the completion of horizontal wells. After the course, participants will be able to contribute to the development of shale well completions, participating in multi-disciplinary groups dedicated to the design hydraulic fracturing in these formations.
The first day of the course reviews the role of fracturing in well production an discusses the technical and economical concepts related with this Completion Technique. A quiz will help the instructor to steer the best approach to the audience level in Fracturing.Day 2
During the second day of the course, Fracturing techniques in Sandstones and Shales are compared, as well as fracturing fluids and proppants. Numerous exercises are used to clarify the application of these concepts.Day 3
The third day of the course discusses in-depth the geomechanics of shales (mechanical earth model and anisotropy) and perforating strategy for horizontal drains. Numerous exercises are used to clarify the application of these concepts.
During the forth day of the course, are presented the models that apply to hydraulic fractures in shale formations, discussing the required coverage of complex fractures. Numerous exercises are used to clarify the application of these concepts.Day 5
The last of the course presents the reasons for fracturing horizontal drains in conventional and unconventional formations, discussing the near-well fracturing issues, the use of vertical pilot holes and cementing concerns in horizontal wells. A last day quiz reflects the progress during the class and a Round Table summarizes points for improvement.
