About this item

Hydraulic fracturing, while not a new technology, has expanded its usage thanks to technology and the shale boom, yet new and veteran petroleum engineers are still short on fracturing experiences and workflow in the field, especially in unconventional reservoirs and still in need of a one-stop reference to fully understand the technology and application bridge between learning about hydraulic fracturing and doing a successful operation. Hydraulic Fracturing in Unconventional Reservoirs introduces the basic characteristics and theories about hydraulic fracturing, the main process of fracturing in shale, including the main workflow, the details in case analysis, and the fundamental differences between theory study and practical operation. Providing the audience with abundant figures of tools, materials, proppants, fracturing fluid and rock samples, this reference guides the engineer and manager through the beginning concepts and into more advanced features of a hydraulic fracturing operation such as propagation mechanisms, fracture merging, and stress shadow effects. Rounding out with coverage on environmental aspects and practice problems on design and economic analysis, Hydraulic Fracturing in Unconventional Reservoirs delivers the critical link from academia to industry to apply for all aspects of hydraulic fracturing operations.

  • Understand basic characteristics of unconventional reservoirs and introductory theories and practices on hydraulic fracturing, including post-fracturing analysis
  • Grasp company assets and financial responsibility with coverage on economic evaluation and how to predict decline curves
  • Strengthen real-world skills with practice examples at the end of every chapter
