Session 1: Frac Diagnostics I

Fracture diagnostics play an important role in understanding and improving fracture stimulation. In this session, we discuss different methods for fracture diagnostics, from downhole fiber optic sensors to diagnostic fracture injection tests and readily available flowback and pressure data. A focus on innovative uses of data collected to help in stacked pay delineation, well-bore spacing decisions and the assessment of single entry point fracture initiation will be presented.

Session 2: Proppant Transport and Fracture Conductivity

The topics of this session relate to proppant transport and fracture conductivity. Proppant transport evaluations include studies on the effects of characteristics, fracture inclination, high viscosity friction reducers. Other notable papers investigate the effects of triaxial stress on fracture conductivity in the Niobrara Formation, and share stimulation results from nano-dispersion technology applications in the Delaware Basin.
