Hydraulic fracturing of tight gas shales is a relatively new method of producing economically from extremely low permeability reservoirs. Due to the low permeability, it is crucial that fracturing treatments are able to efficiently create regions of enhanced permeability in the reservoir. The mechanical properties of prospective shale mean that stress interactions between adjacent fractures can be of real consequence to the efficiency of the treatment, and alternative treatments to mitigate… CONTINUE READING
