Abstract

In the case of low permeability reservoirs, hydraulic fracturing is a completion strategy that increases the contact between the well and the reservoir that finally will increase the well production. Fracture propagation is a result of the interaction of different physical processes like creation of new surface (fracture toughness), fluid flow in the fracture and porous media and their interaction, fracture geometry, rock elasto-plastic behavior, pre-existing fracture sets and in situ stress.
