Analysis of Fracturing Pressure Data in Heterogeneous Shale Formations
(hydraulic Fracturing Journal, 2014-04)
Existing techniques for the interpretation of real-time fracturing data assumes that fracture propagation is a continuous power function of time, and that fractures propagate smoothly over time. This assumption implies ...
Shale Gas Plays Screening Criteria “A Sweet Spot Evaluation Methodology
(Prepared to submitted to Fracturing Impacts and Technologies Conference, 2014-09)
This work introduces a new approach developed for shale gas plays screening criteria. The proposed algorithm takes into consideration thickness, depth, TOC, maturity, brittleness, mineral composition, total porosity, net ...

Fracturability Index for Optimal Well Placement and Fracture Positioning
(Hydraulic Fracturing Journal, 2014-09)
The early detection of "sweet spots" for oil/gas well site selection and fracturing in shale reservoirs is a challenge for many operators. Most of the time, unique parameters are utilized (i.e. brittleness) to determine ...
