Kinetix Shale Hydraulic Fracture Design

Kinetix Shale* engineered stimulation design is built on the industry leading Petrel*E&P platform which links reservoir characterization, stimulation, and production simulation and helps optimize completion designs in conventional and unconventional reservoirs. In addition to the conventional planar fracture simulation models, the unconventional fracture simulation models such as UFM (Unconventional Fracture Model) and the wiremesh model are incorporated in the software to simulate complex hydraulic fracture networks.

Kinetix Shale, therefore, enables optimized completion design which helps in maximizing production performance and improved ROI in tight sand, shale, and conventional reservoirs.
