Houston, Texas

This three-day course introduces participants to the design of hydraulic fractures. Through lecture combined with practical exercise, this course presents the fundamental principles of hydraulic fracturing. Using this knowledge, participants will understand hydraulic fracture designs and the decisions made to create a fracture plan. Topics include:
• Fluids and proppants
• Environmental impacts
• Basic theory of fracture propagation
• Reservoir types and treatment options
• Elements of fracture design
