Laboratory and Numerical Investigation of Hydraulic Fracture Propagation and Permeability Evolution in Heterogeneous and Anisotropic Shale and Sustainability

No License Restrictions

Final Report ESD14084 - The overall goal of the Phase II project is to understand the relationships between the properties of "problematic," ductile, and swelling-clay-rich shales and their impact on the time-dependent fluid/gas transport in the rock matrix and proppant-containing fractures. To accomplish this goal, core-scale laboratory experiments will be conducted under controlled temperature and stress, using several available natural shale samples with different ductility and clay compositions, and numerical modeling of the shale deformation and fluid transport will be performed and checked for accuracy against the laboratory results so that the models can be used for predicting the fluid transport in hydraulic fractures at the block-to-reservoir scales.
