Abstract

Fracture height prediction and evaluation is critical in<br>understanding the effectiveness of a fracturing treatment.<br>Volumetrically, fracturing must adhere to mass balance<br>equations. Therefore, proppant placed in the fracture must be<br>accounted for in the creation of fracture height, width, and<br>length. In many cases, excessive fracture height generation is<br>at the expense of fracture width and length creation. As a<br>result, in fracture treatments where excessive height growth is<br>believed to have occurred, premature screenouts are usually<br>the result of insufficient fracture width. This unfortunate<br>circumstance creates an operational strain and productivity<br>underperformance for wells.
