This paper presents a detailed case history of hydraulic fracture treatments in tight oil reservoirs in remote onshore locations in China. For cases presented in this study, microseismic mapping and fracture modeling approaches were applied to understand fracture growth behavior. This paper provides a brief summary of reservoir background, but focuses on microseismic mapping as well as fracture modeling analysis. Results from fracture modeling and microseismic mapping were employed to understand post-frac performance.
