... Basin (WCSB), where only a gamma ray log is available: In one case drill cuttings are used for estimating geomechanical properties to select fracture initiation zones; in the other case symmetric fracturing stages are selected without giving consideration to geomechanical properties. The conclusion...

... fracture behavior, allowing diagnosis of anomalous fracture growth behavior and evaluation of remediation measures. Fracture diagnostics during the first horizontal well revealed an unexpectedly complex near-wellbore fracture geometry, a result of fracture initiation problems. These problems slowed...

... fracture initiations. In the first treatment, only neat fluid was used; the second treatment incorporated proppant concentrations varying from 1 to 6 lb/gal after pumping 2880 barrels pad volume. For both treatments, Newtonian fluid, with 100 cp viscosity, was injected at a rate of 3 0 bpm for a total...
