Effect of Stimulation on the Performance of Devonian Shale Gas Wells Academic Article uri icon


  • Summary This paper presents the results of a study of the effect of various stimulation methods on Devonian shale reservoirs and compares the economics of the stimulation alternatives. Formation permeability anisotropy and induced fracture wing length are the key factors that determine the optimal stimulation technique. Induced fracture conductivity and orientation are also important.
