About this item
This hands-on guide teaches the application of modern fracturing methods in horizontal wellsThis comprehensive resource discusses horizontal drilling and multiple hydraulic fracturing in the oil and gas industry. You will learn how to effectively extract energy from horizontal sources—such as shale formations—using current fracking tools and technologies.Fracturing Horizontal Wells lays out the history and evolution of fracture stimulation in horizontal and highly deviated wellbores and teaches practical methods to improve productivity and safely maximize natural gas extraction. Fluid flow, rock mechanics, drilling, and zonal isolation are covered in full detail. Advanced chapters explain hydra-jetting for well construction processes, multiple interval fracture placement, proppant and proppant transport, microseismic theory, and environmental stewardship.• High-quality illustrations, figures, and tables are featured throughout• Offers real-world examples and case studies from the field• Author is a world-renowned expert on reservoir completion and production
