... of fracture networks comprised of both preexisting natural fractures and newly created fractures from hydraulic stimulation has significant implications for both optimizing production and minimizing the infrastructure footprint on the ecosystem. Towards this goal, this study synthesizes all available datasets...

... that any effects caused by stress-sensitivity of reservoir parameters are largely reversible. Permeability derived from all tests are much larger than those obtained from laboratory data, leading to the interpretation that natural fractures are elevating system permeability. Fracture half-lengths are also...
