Paper presented at the 55th U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 18–25, 2021
Paper Number: ARMA-2021-1079
... ABSTRACT: The pulsating hydraulic fracturing (PHF) technology generates a pulse pressure wave at a wellhead and then propagates this pulse pressure wave to the wellbore end to fracture the rock. Compared with the conventional hydraulic fracturing (CHF), PHF can induce more complex hydraulic...
