Hydraulic Fracture Modeling delivers all the pertinent technology and solutions in one product to become the go-to source for petroleum and reservoir engineers. Providing tools and approaches, this multi-contributed reference presents current and upcoming developments for modeling rock fracturing including their limitations and problem-solving applications.

Fractures are common in oil and gas reservoir formations, and with the ongoing increase in development of unconventional reservoirs, more petroleum engineers today need to know the latest technology surrounding hydraulic fracturing technology such as fracture rock modeling. There is tremendous research in the area but not all located in one place. Covering two types of modeling technologies, various effective fracturing approaches and model applications for fracturing, the book equips today’s petroleum engineer with an all-inclusive product to characterize and optimize today’s more complex reservoirs.

Key Features

  • Offers understanding of the details surrounding fracturing and fracture modeling technology, including theories and quantitative methods
  • Provides academic and practical perspective from multiple contributors at the forefront of hydraulic fracturing and rock mechanics
  • Provides today’s petroleum engineer with model validation tools backed by real-world case studies


Petroleum engineers, senior reservoir engineers, senior production engineers
