Thiscourse is ideal for those who have some theoreticalunderstanding and practical experience of hydraulic fracturing, and want to significantly increase their knowledge and expertise.
We will conduct detailed discussions of fracturing concepts that are either generally accepted or assumed, and are used in fracturing design, application, and analysis. The strengths and weakness of the various approaches to fracturing will be covered.
The course is designed for
Production, operations, and completions engineers, and supervisors, who are actively involved in hydraulic fracturing design, application and analysis, and desire a more in-depth understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects. Attendees should have some previous fracturing experience, or should have already attended a basic or intermediate level Hydraulic Fracturing Applications course.
Upon completion of the course, the trainee will be able to:
Acquire the required data
Check the validity of the data
Input the data into a fracture simulator
Design a frac treatment
Plan and supervise a frac treatment
Post-frac analysis and evaluation.
The course is based on the innovative ideas and concepts built into the FRACPRO Simulator. As such, the use of powerful and unique features will be learned:
Net pressure matching
Design for Net pressure development
Fracture Entry Friction Analysis
Tip effects (dilatancy)
Proppant convection, etc.
The emphasis is on:
Candidate selection and screening
Physically and economically optimized designs
Safe placement to completion (avoiding unplanned job terminations: screenouts)
Effective placement, packing of the fracture with proppant, aka TSO design and placement
Real-time, real-data, on-location, Minifrac and Mainfrac analysis
Mainfrac Treatment analysis and evaluation
Pre and post frac QA-QC
The above are accomplished by focusing on resolving the two major issues in Propped Hydrofracture Stimulation:
Can the treatment be placed safely and effectively to completion?
Was the placement effective? (Is the proppant opposite and all along the payzone?).
Emerging advanced technologies
During the last decade, the field of hydraulic fracturing has experienced tremendous technological development, which is slowly implemented in field operations. Some developments to be covered are listed in Emerging Advanced technologies in the outline below.
Actual case studies
To reinforce the learning experience, actual case studies from around the world, will be demonstrated in the classroom. In addition, some exercises will be worked on in groups, in order to gain confidence in the application of the technology.
