Paper about Hydraulic Fracturing

Another example of fracture complexity imaged during the Barnett hydraulic treatments is the effect of stimulating a well that has inadvertently drilled within the depleted zone of a neighboring well rotation in the stress field associated with depletion resulting in a change in the dominant fracture orientation "Refracture

Effect of Formation Stress Distribution on Hydraulic

Effect of production induced change in stress field on the propagation of the secondary fracture was studied by Weng and Siebrits (2007) using a dual-frac PKN model They showed that a refracture treatment can include three phases of refracture propagation reopening and eventually propagating the primary fracture

Effect of Residual Stress on S

Effect of welding residual stresson fracture

Effect of residual stress on cleavage fracture toughness was investigated by using the cohesive zone model with a bilinear traction-separationlaw Several cases were studied to understand the effect of residual stresses on the cleavage fracture toughness Results suggest that the behaviour of residual stress is very similar to T-stress

Abstract: Stress shadowing where the stress field around an induced hydraulic fracture reorients from its far field directions by up to 90 degrees is a major factor in designing and executing multiple hydraulic fractured horizontal well completions This is especially true as the number of hydraulic fracture increases for a given lateral length
