Paper presented at the SPE Canada Unconventional Resources Conference, March 13–14, 2018
Paper Number: SPE-189809-MS
.... Firstly, we revisit the physical background of the single-phase flow diffusivity equation by discussing the equivalent single particle diffusion. Combining the characteristics of single particle diffusion with complex fracture geometry, it is indicated that anomalous diffusion phenomenon will be dominant...

... effectively in the current fracture, and can withstand enough pressure to allow initiation and propagation of subsequent fractures. In this case, a blend of four distinct particle sizes and fibers made from degradable synthetic polymer was pumped following each fracturing stage in order to divert subsequent...

... maintaining outside-casing parameters constant. Validation of empirical proppant transport CFD simulation results are compared to experimental test data. The CFD results indicate that proppant transport can be accurately modeled when the effects of single particle settling, density driven flow, particle...

... the subsequent fracturing treatment. The isolation approach can range from using a rig to set physical barriers that redirect the fluid flow to the use of specialized particulates placed in the flow stream to divert the treatment. These specialized particles integrated into the flow stream are commonly called...

By applying this technique the formation materials are idealized as an assembly of discrete particles interacting in a manner which allow for specific descriptions of the morphology and fracturing events. Computational tests conducted on several types of models...

... recently been shown that micron-sized metal particles improve the efficiency of some ex-situ processes such as coal liquefaction and pyrolysis, heavy oil upgrading, oil shale recovery, and heavy oil viscosity reduction. This idea, with some modifications, can be applied to reduce the energy input...

... when choosing samples for volumetric analysis. Secondary electron imaging of broken samples allows assessment of particle and crystal shapes in 3 dimensions, and provides evidence of the condition (maturity) of organic matter. While pores are visible in broken samples, quantification of size...
