Hydraulic Fracturing in Unconventional Reservoirs: Theories, Operations, and Economic Analysis introduces the basic characteristics and theories surrounding hydraulic fracturing and the main process of fracturing in shale, including the main workflow, the details in case analysis, and the fundamental differences between theory, study, and practical operation. The book takes the complex nature of the hydraulic fracturing in unconventional reservoirs and applies a practical approach that can be useds as a workflow for designing fracture treatments in various shale basins across the world.
Providing the audience with theories, best practices, operation and execution, and economic analysis of hydraulic fracturing in unconventional reservoirs, this reference guides the engineer and manager throughÂ broad topics includingÂ an introduction to unconventional reservoirs, advanced shale reservoir characterization, and shale gas in place calculation as well asÂ expanding to basic theories of hydraulic fracturing and advanced topics in shale reservoir stimulation.
Rounding out with coverage on the environmental aspects and practice problems on design and economic analysis, the book delivers the critical link needed between academia and industry for all aspects of hydraulic fracturing operations.
- Presents basic characteristics of unconventional reservoirs and introductory theories and practices on hydraulic fracturing, including post-fracturing analysis
- Includes an explanation of company assets and financial responsibility, with coverage on economic evaluation and how to predict decline curves
- Provides tactics on how to strengthen real-world skills with the inclusion of practice examples at the end of the book
