Comprehensive Hydraulic Fracturing - Combination of Fundamentals of Hydraulic Fracturing and Advanced Horizontal Well Fracturing
(PTRT2015)

Comprehensive Hydraulic Fracturing – 5 days (combination of two classes)

These are two separate and recently modified courses. The first course establishes the essential technical and operational aspects of fracturing, while the second extends the discussion into horizontal wells. Emphasis in both courses is on day-to-day application of hydraulic fracturing. While each is a separate and independent course on its own, more comprehensive understanding of fracturing is gained if they are taken back-to-back.

Fundamentals of Hydraulic Fracturing (2 days)

What is a hydraulic fracture? Why and how do we fracture wells? What materials do we use? What constitutes a successful job? This course has two main objectives; a sound fundamental understanding of the mechanics, materials, and techniques of hydraulic fracturing, and, how to apply them in day-to-day operations.

Advanced Horizontal Well Fracturing (3 days)

This expanded course offers a comprehensive review of the mechanics of fracture initiation and extension in horizontal wells, and full coverage of various available commercial completion systems and their application for different production objectives. The course expansion covers application of some of the new and cost-effective diagnostic tools for determination of fracturing parameters (orientation, length, growth mode, conductivity, etc.).

Dr. Ali Daneshy teaches a graduate course on hydraulic fracturing at the University of Houston and is president of Daneshy Consultants Int'l. He is an SPE Distinguished Lecturer and winner of SPE Distinguished Service Award for his contributions to hydraulic fracturing. He is well-known throughout the world for his fracturing expertise. He has over 40 technical publications on the subject and has led and participated in planning, execution and optimization of many fracturing campaigns in all parts of the world during his 40 years of experience in the oil and gas industry. This is a very popular course and is taught regularly in US, Canada and many other countries.
