Session 1: Fracture Modeling

With increasing complexity in well completion practices and formation properties being considered in the hydraulic fracture design process, sophisticated numerical modeling methods that couple geomechanics and fluid flow are being developed to address these complexities. This session presents diverse modeling techniques employed for full 3D fracture modeling, fracture height growth in laminated shale, interaction of multiple fractures, fluid flow in channel fracturing, and acid fracturing.
