Hydraulic Fracturing effectively busts the myths associated with hydraulic fracturing. It explains how to properly engineer and optimize a hydraulically fractured well by selecting the right materials, evaluating the economic benefits of the project, and ensuring the safety and success of the people, environment, and equipment. From data estimation to design, operation, and performance management, the text presents a logical, step-by-step process for hydraulic fracturing that aids in proper engineering decision making when stimulating a particular reservoir. Numerous problem sets reinforce the learning and aid in risk assessment.

Features
•Gives a brief history of hydraulic fracturing, an introduction to its use, and a summary of how a treatment is performed at the surface
•Defines where the basic values used to build a simple fracture geometry model come from, what they mean, and what their impact is on the design
•Explores fracturing pressure analysis and other fracture diagnostics
•Discusses material selection including proppant types and fluids
•Covers operations and quality control including pre-frac operations such as perforating for fracturing
•Addresses acid fracturing, shale/horizontal well fracturing, frac packing, and waste disposal

2015 by CRC Press/Taylor and Francis, hardbound, 812 pages with over 500 illustrations
