Hydraulic Fracturing: Fundamentals and Advancements (PDF) is written by a group of 26 subject-matter experts representing a variety of backgrounds, expertise, and experience. This book provides an extensive discussion on the fundamentals of hydraulic fracturing, in addition to the most recent processes that have inspired the explosive growth in stimulating horizontal wells in shale and fuel and tight oil reservoirs. The authors of this book are all experts in their respective fields.
A Condensed Table of Contents An Overview of Chapter 1
Evaluation of the Pretreatment Formation is covered in Chapter 2, followed by Rock Mechanics and Fracture Geometry in Chapter 3, Hydraulic Fracture Modeling in Chapter 4, Proppants and Fracture Conductivity in Chapter 5, and Fracturing Fluids and Additives in Chapter 6.
Leakage of fluids is discussed in Chapter 7, and the flow behavior of fracturing fluids is discussed in Chapter 8.
Chapter 9 is devoted to the transportation of proppant; Chapter 10 is concerned with the design of hydraulic fracturing treatment; Chapter 11 is concerned with well completions
