Course description

Hydraulic Fracturing Applications - HFU

The course reviews the basic concepts of hydraulic fracturing and the broad applications of the technique. Fracturing technology benefits and limitations in all types of sandstone and carbonate reservoirs are explained. It considers the critical components of the fracturing process, and it expands on the steps and data input requirements to effectively select stimulation candidates, plan, design, and implement hydraulic fracturing treatments.

The use of modeling as an important tool to design and analyze treatments, how it can be effectively used in practical applications, and its limitations are explained. In addition to the technical presentation, the course contains many practical exercises and class problems based on case histories.

Who should attend?

Production, reservoir, and drilling engineers, and others who have a basic understanding of hydraulic fracturing and need to enhance their knowledge about fracturing concepts and applications.
