Share your views and opinions on what you consider to be the most important factors when hydraulically fracturing gas shales. How important is it to have an understanding of the geology? How does having a highly heterogeneous reservoir affect what you do when you fracture the well? How does having a system of sealed natural fractures impact your fracturing program?
Please post your thoughts in the comments section of this blog.
We’ll cover those topics and more in our next e-symposium on September 9 at 2 pm CDT. Our presenter is Randy LaFollette, Manager, Shale Gas Technology, BJ Services Company.
Randy will cover the following topics in the one-hour live webinar:
–Sealed Natural Fractures
–Characteristics of Shales
–Mineralogy of Shales / Mudstones
–Complex Hydraulic Fracturing
–The Hydraulic Fracturing Process
–Fracturing Fluid / Frac Fluid Selection
–Additives / Additives Selection
–Fracture Treatment Validation via Microseismic Monitoring
–Critical Production Drivers: Well Architecture
–Frac Size vs. Production
