Three-Dimensional Numerical Model of Hydraulic Fracturing in Fractured Rock Masses

Three-Dimensional Numerical Model of Hydraulic Fracturing in Fractured Rock Masses

Abstract Conventional methods for simulation of hydraulic fracturing are based on assumptions of continuous, isotropic and homogeneous media. These assumptions are not valid for most rock mass formations, particularly shale gas reservoirs, as these typically consist of a large volume of naturally fractured rock in which propagation of a hydraulic fracture

A Comprehensive Numerical Model for Simulating Fluid Transport in Nanopores

In this study, a numerical model was developed to investigate the effect of confined phase behavior on cumulative oil and gas production of four horizontal wells with different fracture geometries.
