Paper presented at the SPE/IATMI Asia Pacific Oil & Gas Conference and Exhibition, October 29–31, 2019
Paper Number: SPE-196291-MS
.... However much of remaining reserve is still locked in reservoir with lower permeability where conventional completion cannot economically produce these type reservoirs. Many technologies have been applied in order to produce at economical rate these reservoirs, including hydraulic fracturing. Hydraulic...

Paper presented at the SPE Eastern Regional Meeting, October 3–5, 2012
Paper Number: SPE-161344-MS
... Abstract Fracture conductivity in many hydraulic-fracturing treatments can be inadequate. It is greatly affected by the concentration of the packed proppant in the fracture. Higher concentrations yield higher conductivity by virtue of a wider fracture. However, there are practical limitations...

...George E. King Management - This is an excerpt from SPE 152596. The use of horizontal wells and hydraulic fracturing is so effective that it has been called “disruptive.” That is, it threatens the profitability and continued development of other energy sources, such as wind and solar, because it is...
