This e-symposium will focus on hydraulic fracture geometry in shales, the materials used in the fracturing process, and treatment monitoring via microseismic.

Key topics include:

  • Why Unconventional Gas Reservoirs Need to be Hydraulically Fractured
  • The Importance of Complex Hydraulic Fracture Geometry
  • The Hydraulic Fracturing Process described
  • Fracturing Materials
  • Hydraulic Fracturing Process
  • What Can We Control During a Fracture Treatment?
  • Why Cause and Effect with Respect to Production Are Not Always Obvious
