Objective of Fracturing for Well Stimulation
2020-12-16 17:33:56

The objective of hydraulic fracturing for well stimulation is to increase well productivity by creating a highly conductive path ( compared to reservior permeability) some distance away from the wellbore into the formation. Usually the conductivity is maintained by propping with sand to hold the fracture faces apart. Acid fracturing involves most of the same considerations as hydraulic fracturing except that conductivity is generated by removing portions of the fracture faces with acid, leaving etched channels after the fracture closes.
