Description

This book examines the underlying mechanics of creating a fracture from vertical or deviated wellbores and the propagation of a hydraulic fracture in the reservoir.

Table of Contents

Featuring a wellbore and 2D fracture models. Three dimensional fracture model. Proppant transport in a 3D fracture. Deviated wellbores. Link-up of mini-fractures from perforated holes. Turning of fracture from a deviated wellbore. Experimental studies. Index.
