Event description

Description

The fee of $375 includes snacks, class notes, and PDH certificate. The Instructor wiill be Dr. Jennifer Miskimins of the Colorado School of Mines

Course Objectives

This two-day short course is directed at engineering and geoscience professionals involved in hydraulic fracture stimulation of oil and gas wells. The primary focus is stimulation design for tight gas and unconventional reservoirs, but the topics covered apply generally to hydraulic fracture stimulation of all reservoirs. Specific topics include rock mechanics, stresses, modeling, perforating for stimulation, fracture fluid rheology, predicting conductivity, pre-treatment injection tests, proppant transport, and horizontal well stimulation. The main course objective is to review and discuss topics critical for optimizing hydraulic fracturing treatments.

What Participants Can Reasonably Expect to Learn

An emphasis is placed on fracturing treatment design and the input data required to optimize such treatments. The course stresses the interrelationships between data and disciplines in fracture design optimization.

Who Should Attend

The course is primarily intended to offer an introduction to hydraulic fracture design and optimization. Those new to the industry, new to hydraulic fracturing completions, or just interested in a refresher on hydraulic fracturing concepts will benefit most from the course.

The Instructor

Dr. Miskimins holds B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in petroleum engineering. Prior to joining CSM, she worked for Marathon Oil Company in a variety of locations. Dr. Miskimins is the founder and past Director of the Fracturing, Acidizing, Stimulation Technology (FAST) Consortium at CSM. She teaches a variety of short courses including completions and stimulation classes. She is a member of SPE, SPWLA, and AAPG and was an SPE Distinguished Lecturer for 2010-2011 and 2013-2014.
