This course is designed to provide better understanding, enhance knowledge and strengthen the decision making capability of the participants about Hydraulic Fracturing Operations implemented to recover or enhance well performance.
The size, cost, and critical contributions of the current hydraulic fracturing technology is driving increased requirement to evaluate fracturing treatments so that their impact under different reservoir conditions can be better understood and forecasted. Emerging technologies for implementing and evaluating hydraulic fracturing treatments willbe covered along with review of the reservoir properties which dictate suitable type of the treatment.
Through the development of hydraulic fracturing techniques, vital sources of energy have been unlocked in various coal and shale throughout the world. As the operators in Asia pacific region taking more interest and moving into unconventional gas development, this course is a perfect opportunity to be ahead and develop vital skills required for energy sources challenges coming ahead.
Efforts will be exerted at the early phase of the course to understand the geological and reservoir properties for vertical, horizontal and multilateral wells prior to developing the basic concepts of formation damage and hydraulic fracturing. Moreover, the course includes fracturing quality control, conducting treatments, monitoring pressures and other critical parameters, during and after the treatments.A vital part of the course is class teamwork whereby attendee's teams evaluate and design Frac treatments to bring out important information and parameters discussed during the course.
