Production performance of hydraulically fractured gas wells Conference Paper uri icon


  • This study presents simulation results of fracture fluid cleanup and gas production behavior for hydraulically fractured gas wells. Isotropic and anisotropic, and single- and multi-layer reservoirs were studied. Systematic investigation revealed that formation damage near the fracture is a key factor affecting fracture fluid cleanup and gas production. Also, improper simplification of a multilayer reservoir may lead to overestimates of gas production.
