... fracture length. The equation generated suggests that the optimal fracture length is proportional to (1/ β ) 1/3 , which means that if non-Darcy flow increases 8 times, the optimal fracture length would have been decreased by half. The optimal fracture length is also a function of fracture volume...

... Abstract We present an analytical expression for the optimum fracture length for a gas or gas-condensate well with or without non - Darcy effects in the fracture. It is shown that the optimum fracture length depends mainly on fracture conductivity, formation permeability, size of the condensate...

If the engineer uses the wrong fracture height, then the calculated values of fracture length and width will also be wrong. Most of the time, an engineer tends to underestimate fracture height and, thus, overestimate...
