Hydraulic Fracturing and horizontal wells are the main enabling mechanism to access the enormous reserves in shale gas and shale oil. Multi-fractured horizontal wells have been used together for over 30 years and have accounted for well over a million fracs in an estimated eighty thousand wells in the shales of North America alone. This talk will focus on the technology adaptation and innovations that have made this growth possible. Topics covered will include shale evaluation, horizontal well positioning, fracture spacing, fracture application, flowback concerns and water sustainability. George E. King, Distinguished Engineering Advisor of Apache Corporation is the guest speaker.
