Paper presented at the SPE Canada Unconventional Resources Conference, September 28–October 2, 2020
Paper Number: SPE-199976-MS
... Abstract This paper introduces a 3D hydraulic fracturing propagation model (3D-HFPM) for evaluating fracture extension, geometry, stress response, fracture spacing, and potential for refracturing. The model is illustrated with data of the Horn River shale of Canada. The model is developed...

... extent of fracture connectivity between offset wells and show fracture propagation dependency on well spacing and sequence of fracturing. Furthermore, fluid tracers provided an estimate of lower bound on the fracture connectivity, as well as a qualitative measure of stage contribution based on the load...

Paper presented at the SPE/CSUR Unconventional Resources Conference, October 20–22, 2015
Paper Number: SPE-175933-MS
... planar fracture models used in the industry today are not able to simulate complex fracture networks. A recently developed unconventional complex fracture propagation model is able to simulate complex fracture network propagation in a formation with pre-existing natural fractures. Multiple fracture...

... geometry anaysis. Fracture pressure history matching was performed for well initiation targets in both the Niobrara and Frontier formations. Objectives were to ideally observe and replicate through simulation the treatment response to help designate the number of fracture propagating and resultant...

... being propagated through the upper pay. Idealized hydraulic fracture propagation within a homogenous continuum occurs in simple tension, parallel to the direction of maximum horizontal stress. However, in naturally fractured rock masses such as those present in the Horn River Basin, the propagation...

... shear stress on opening or closing of natural fractures during creation of hydraulic fractures, and changes in shear- and compressional- wave velocities for seismic imaging purposes. A specific application of the product of this research is to simulate fracture propagation, gel cleanup and water block...
