Flowback of Fracturing Fluids with Upgraded Visualization of Hydraulic Fractures and its Implications on Overall Well Performance
The scope of our study includes determining the fate of the fracturing fluid within the reservoir, and calculating the loss in incremental production as a consequence of that outcome. The information can be used to more effectively predict the performance of stimulated wells with hydraulic fractures over time. Also, an estimation of incremental oil recovery post treatment can be calculated more accurately.
This new knowledge is beneficial to many of the participants - service provider companies will enjoy a clear understanding of the treatment; operating companies should perform more reliable economic analyses; the individual states could realize increased accuracy in the quantification of reserves; and regulatory agencies can better determine the probability of these fluids in groundwater contamination.
