As the increasing demand of gas to support the industrial boom grows in the entire world, the unconventional, in particular, extremely tight gas reservoirs are playing significant role. However, the exploitation of these tight resources is still an economical and technical challenge, which can be dealt with the incisive use of current resources. Effective hydraulic fracturing techniques are the only solutions that make the development of these resources economical. This paper is concerned about the method of fracturing treatment design, economical evaluation, candidate selection, and fracture economic optimization. Finally, the detailed financial analysis of fracture job with net production increase is used to select the best stimulation solution for tight gas reservoirs. Moreover, the paper will serve as a good source of information to gain better understanding of hydraulic fracturing design to maximize the economics of tight gas reservoirs.
