...) and natural fractures (NFs) plays a key role in the formation of complex fracture networks. This interaction has been investigated by researchers using different models ( Cao et al., 2021 ; Ouchi et al., 2015 ; Wu and Olson, 2015 ; Agarwal et al, 2019 ; McClure et al., 2016 ). Gu and Weng (2010...

This helps ensure the remaining signals are caused by induced fluid-filled fracture networks only ( Hickey, et al., 2015b ). Like any diagnostic...

Much of this early decline is caused by depletion of the natural fracture network and at least some...

All tracers were detected in the produced fluid samples, indicating that no traced segment was placed outside of the propped fracture network. The results also indicate that significant tracer mixing occured...

The PL3D model is more accurate but very CPU intensive, which makes it unsuitable to simulate complex hydraulic fracture networks due...
