Hydraulic fracturing has gained renewed importance as complex fine-grained highly intercalated reservoirs are being horizontally drilled, and where fractures and sweet spots in heterogeneous reservoirs make all the difference. How do you do a staged frac that won’t break the bank? How do you avoid formation damage? How long do you shut in to build up pressure (or do you not do that at all?)? How can case studies help you apply lessons learned from one formation or field to another? Take B. J. Service’s Randy LaFollette’s short course at the AAPG Summer Education Conference in June in Fort Worth and learn to optimize your hydraulic fracs. Details below.  You may also wish to take U.S. Silica’s Frank Syfan’s August 25 esymposium: Overview of Hydraulic Fracturing Mechanics and Design.
