Session 1: Fracture Diagnostics

This session will cover applications and new technologies or analysis methods for evaluating stimulation distribution effectiveness, production profiling results, inter-well Interference, effects of stress shadowing and reservoir characteristics. Diagnostics presented include: Optic Fiber Distributed Sensing (Acoustic and Temperature), Microseismic, Diagnostic Fracture Injection Tests, Electromagnetic Imaging, and Geochemical Fingerprinting. Several authors emphasize the value of integration of complementary diagnostic methods to improve confidence in the interpretations and analysis. Application of diagnostics to calibrate models for frac geometry and well spacing evaluations are also presented.

Session 2: Proppant Transport / Conductivity

The focus of this session is on proppant transport mechanisms and proppant conductivity. Both lab experiments and 3D modeling provide new insights into proppant placement between clusters as well as along the created fractures. In addition, the effects of varying rock mechanical properties and brines will be presented and their effects on the proppant conductivity.
