Description: The course covers the fundamental physical processes controlling hydraulic fracturing in both conventional and unconventional reservoir developments. Topics include log petrophysical analysis and log QC, developing calibrated reservoir and mechanical earth models from limited or incomplete data, geo-steering wells and assessing landing points, design and evaluation of treatment fluid systems for sand transport and geometry creation, pre- and post-frac diagnostics applications and interpretation, post-frac production forecasting for single and multiple wells or treatment stages, rate-transient analysis of actual production data, and economic optimization of pattern developments.

Who Should Attend: The course content assumes a sound foundation in petroleum engineering or geoscience. It is appropriate for reservoir, completion, and operations engineers, development geologists, petrophysicists, and managers involved in development planning. Graduate students currently working on dissertations are encouraged to attend.
