This paper summarizes the results of the modeling studies to determine the production performance of multiply fractured horizontal well completed in tight sand or Shale formations. A commercial reservoir simulator was utilized to model both single and a dual porosity reservoir with multiple layers. The results were utilized to investigate the flow regimes for horizontal wells with one or multi-stages of hydraulic fracturing stimulation. The impact of reservoir and fracture parameters on the flow regimes and the production performance was also investigated.
