In this study of the Brushy Canyon, sonic-derived, rock-mechanical properties and bottomhole treating pressure (BHTP) data from mini and main fracture treatments will be history-matched with three-dimensional (3D), lumped 3D, and pseudo 3D fracture models. Height dimensions obtained from these history-matches are compared with temperature and radioactive tracer surveys to better characterize fracturing mechanics in this Delaware Mountain Group formation.
