Influence of Proppant Behaviour on Hydraulic Fracturing Conductivity in Deep Reservoirs

posted on 2019-03-03, 22:37 authored by YUNLONG TANG
Proppant plays a vital role after horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing in tight oil/gas production. This thesis aims to identify the optimum proppant utilization strategies for maximum gas production under various geological conditions by obtaining comprehensive knowledge of proppant behavior in fracturing process.
