..., the average fracture heights remained relatively constant for all stress levels. The gas production from shale formations, with same fracture treatment but with different stress contrasts in the horizontal plane, can increase with increase in the value of stress differences. Although this increase...

... on the bedding interfaces is low. Fracture height growth could be hindered or stopped by interfacial slip when a vertical hydraulic fracture propagates in such formations. An interfacial slip model has been developed and implemented in a pseudo-three-dimensional (P3D) hydraulic fracture simulator. In the model...
