Hydraulic Fracture Stimulation Process

This course is designed to equipped you with a fundamental understanding of the hydraulic fracture stimulation process widely utilized in unconventional/shale oil & gas developments such as the Permian, Bakken and EagleFord.  The course is ideal for anyone who requires a fundamental knowledge of this technology and the solutions to key issues for hydraulic fracturing.  This 1 day online-course includes teachings for non-engineers, new engineers and engineers moving into a fracturing role.  Dr. Stuart L. Scott will guide you through the basics of fracturing, answering questions like:

  • What is a Crosslinked Gel Frac Fluid?…..What is the Role of a Breaker in a Frac Treatment?
  • What are Friction Reducers and other Additives Used in Water Frac Treatments?
  • What Happens On-Site during a Frac Treatment?…..what is Frac Quality Control (QC)?
  • How does a Fracture Propagate from the WellBore?….What kind of Fracture Network is Created?
  • What Proppants are on the Market?….and, what are the Current Trends for their use?
  • What are Key Components in a Frac Design?…What Isolation Tools are used in a Horizontal Well?

Topics Include:

  • Motivation for Fracturing and Overview of the Process
  • Frac Well Performance Fundamentals and Conceptual Modeling of Fracturing
  • Fundamental Rock Mechanics Concepts and Nomenclature
  • Frac Fluids and Proppants
  • Job Execution and On-Site Quality Control (QC)
  • Well Design Fundamentals and Zonal Isolation Methods for Fracturing

Learning Level and Length of Course

Introductory –  1 Day

Why Attend?

Attend to receive a strong fundamental understanding of the concepts of hydraulic fracturing an and introduction to the overall process.  Key principles of the Frac’ing will be outlined in an intensive 1-day course that includes some of the basic calculations required for quality control of frac fluids/proppant, on-site job execution and well design.  The course will quickly bring the student up to speed with the nomenclature, basic techniques and materials utilized in frac treatments so on-the-job training can be more productive.

Who Should Attend

Beginning employee and those moving into a Frac related position for the first time will benefit from this course.  The course is designed for employees of oil & gas producing companies as well as service companies and materials/equipment suppliers to the frac industry.  The course provides an introductory level of knowledge.  An engineering background is not necessary, however, some familiarity with the oil & gas industry is desirable.
