Description
This class will prepare students to wisely and critically design hydraulic fracturing treatments as well as make informed recommendations to employers, governments, and communities about the risks and benefits of hydraulic fracturing methods. Upon completion of this course, students will be equipped to use engineering formulae to estimate hydraulic fracture dimensions, evaluate strengths and weaknesses of various modeling approaches, characterize subsurface conditions from wellbore pressure analysis, make sound recommendations for monitoring, and compare and contrast approaches and risks for a range of application domains.
