Hydraulic Fracturing of Gas Shales - An AAPG E-Symposium

Published
American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

This e-symposium will focus on hydraulic fracture geometry in shales, the materials used in the fracturing process, and treatment monitoring via microseismic.

INSTRUCTOR: Randy LaFollette, BJ Services, Tomball, TX

Randy LaFollette is the Manager, Shale Gas Technology, for BJ Services and works from the corporate Technology and Operations Support Center in Tomball, Texas. Mr. LaFollette holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Geological Science from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

He has also presented on shale topics at AAPG and other industry group meetings. He is a co-author of a recently published industry book, “Modern Fracturing, Enhancing Natural Gas Production.”

This e-symposium will focus on hydraulic fracture geometry in shales, the materials used in the fracturing process, and treatment monitoring via microseismic.

Key topics include:
  • Why Unconventional Gas Reservoirs Need to be Hydraulically Fractured
  • The Importance of Complex Hydraulic Fracture Geometry
  • The Hydraulic Fracturing Process described
  • Fracturing Materials
  • Hydraulic Fracturing Process
  • What Can We Control During a Fracture Treatment?
  • Why Cause and Effect with Respect to Production Are Not Always Obvious
