Fracturing Pressure Analysis

The course objective is to provide students with theoretical and practical expertise to acquire both the reservoir transmissibility and pressure required for fracturing production optimization and the correct in-situ state of stress controlling frac placement. The course covers the integration of fundamentals of rock stresses, pressure diffusion, leak-off, poro-elasticity, closure analysis( GPlot) , After Closure analysis (minifalloff method) applied to conventional fracturing models and their calibration using field data. Applicability to extremely tight reservoir (shale) are discussed.

Day 1
  • Fracturing History and Concepts
  • Insitu stress and incipient failure - non-elastic rock - poroelasticity
  • Dynamic closure test (datafrac part 1)
  • Near wellbore stress and non-aligned frac 
Day 2
  • Material Balance
  • Frac Pressure & PTA - Geometry model
  • G-plot decline analysis (datafrac part 2)
  • Wellbore frac height log temperature - Tracer - CHSA
Day 3
  • Leak-off 
  • ACA's Theory and Disgnostic Plot
  • Vertical Fracture Complexity (shales) (short picture set of slides)
  • Exploration Fracture in vertical wells
  • Fractip - Origin of Log-Log and Pressure Derivative
  • Frac Production Optimization (on request)
Day 4
  • Workshop
    • Local example analysis (max. 8 data sets, 1hr/each)
    • 20 min - presentation of cases (geological context, local practice, well specifics)
    • 40 min - discussion
