... of geothermal energy exploitation. Despite the geographical challenges associated with traditional geothermal energy, Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) present a groundbreaking solution for its broader development ( Ricks et al. 2024 ). The core concept of EGS involves the use of hydraulic fracturing to create...

... for traditional RTA. However, the model is not limited to fixed known relationships of pressure and rates that are applicable only under certain assumptions (e.g. planar fractures, single-phase flowing conditions etc.). Complex, non-uniform fractures, and multi-phase flow of fluids do not follow the same...

Paper Number: SPE-213005-MS
... Abstract Nowadays, the only economic and effective way to exploit shale reservoirs is multi-stage fracturing of horizontal wells. The backflow after fracturing affects the damage degree of a fracturing fluid to a formation and fracture conductivity, and directly influences a fracturing outcome...

... Abstract The development of shale plays requires accurate forecasting of production rates and expected ultimate recoveries, which is challenging due to the complexities associated with production from hydraulically fractured horizontal wells in unconventional reservoirs. Traditional empirical...

... as the modeling phase progresses. The model is setup to simulate production from two hydraulically fractured zones within a 500-ft segment of a horizontal multi-fractured well. Figure 1 shows the model layout with the well segment. It is 3,000 ft wide by 500 ft long and 1,000 ft thick. The model space...

...). An actual CSS well case history is used. This study shows there to be a wide range of diatomite steam zone injection conditions that do not cause parting or fracturing of the diatomite by steam. The real -time Hall plots used to continuously track and monitor safe CSS steam injection also provide valuable...
