Poor proppant selection for hydraulic fracturing in a shale play can be disastrous. The wrong size and the wrong coating can result in clogged pore spaces and greatly reduced permeability. Instead of increasing reservoir connectivity, a poor proppant selection can decrease it.

It often seems as though attempts to find sweet spots are restricted to seismic, petrophysics, cores, and regional geological information. There’s geochemical information as well, and as yet, it’s often an underutilized data set, often because there is little or no consistency in the information gathered in all the wells.

If you’re going to enhance fracture systems in shale plays, you’ll definitely need to have a thorough understanding of the goals of hydraulic fracturing, and how you can determine if your operations are effective.

In 1991, Gulf Indonesia and its partners discovered South Sumatra Basin’s first major gas field at Dayung in the Corridor PSC. A key feature of this field is that most of the reserves are held within fractured basement rocks of pre-Tertiary age.

The following short course option was developed for geology and geophysics students that have not had much exposure to how geoscience is applied in industry. It can be tailored for undergraduate juniors and seniors or graduate students. The agenda can be modified to meet specific needs and time constraints. Contact the presenter to discuss options.
