Proppant Selection Drivers in Unconventional Resources

08 November, 2012
Who Should Attend
Geologists, engineers, geotechnologists, and producers who are involved in hydraulic fracturing of unconventional reservoirs.
Objectives
Course Content

The hydraulic fracture is critical to the success of unconventional reservoir development. This talk will present a brief overview of proppants followed by a comprehensive discussion of the major considerations that are driving proppant selection in these plays. Particular attention will be paid to understanding our fractures (the proppant and fluid flow) at realistic downhole conditions. Field studies will be presented that illustrate the economic benefits that have been realized when the frac designs and proppant selection are optimized. This talk is based largely on several recent SPE papers.

Structure of the E-Symposium

Each e-symposium consists of one-hour live e-symposium, along with material for one full day of independent study. The live portion will be followed by a full day of independent study (not a live event). The one-hour live e-symposium can be accessed from any computer anywhere in the world using a high-speed internet connection. After the event is over, you will receive via email information about accessing the asynchronous segment (not live) which consists of your independent study materials, to be accessed and studied at any time. You will be able to email responses to the readings, along with your study question answers for CEU credit (if you sign up for the extended package).

Recording of original webinar, packet of independent study reading materials, PDF of original PowerPoint presentation by FTP download. (Original presentation date: November 8, 2012.) Some materials will also sent by e-mail.
