Paper presented at the SPE Low Perm Symposium, May 5–6, 2016
Paper Number: SPE-180243-MS
... complex fracture systems, which are more common in unconventional reservoirs, advanced proppant transport models are required. In this paper, proppant transport in various fracture geometries is investigated using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models, in which the interaction between proppant...

The equation of acid diffusion is then solved across the fracture width, hence solving the equations of fluid flow for three dimensions in the fracture. The resulting fracture geometry and conductivity are subsequently used...
