Paper presented at the 55th U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 18–25, 2021
Paper Number: ARMA-2021-1129
... ABSTRACT: It is essential to know about any adverse interactions between a shale and fracturing fluid additives. Some frac fluids can alter shale rock petrophysical properties and this can lead to shale softening and fines generation. The softer the shale, the more proppant embedment...

... of unconventional formations. High creep rates accelerate proppant embedment and can decrease the volume and conductivity of a hydraulic fracture contributing to production decline. This paper presents a multi-disciplinary workflow to model the changes in fracture surface area and conductivity at different time...

... shear stress due to gas transportation in the horizontal direction, making it more possible for the rock to induce relative movement. Based on the experimental data, there is a huge increase in proppant embedment rate with shear stress once obvious relative movement (like dilation) appears. Therefore...
