# DEVELOPMENT OF MATHEMATICAL MODEL FOR HYDRAULIC FRACTURING DESIGN

MAHADZIR, NUR ADILLA (2013) DEVELOPMENT OF MATHEMATICAL MODEL FOR HYDRAULIC FRACTURING DESIGN. Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS. (Unpublished)

## Abstract

Hydraulic fracturing has been proposed as one of the stimulation technique to economically increase oil/gas production. The design of hydraulic fracturing must take into account various parameters, considerations and complicated calculations. Therefore the project entitled “Development of the Mathematical Model for Hydraulic Fracturing Design” has been proposed. The objective of this project was to develop a mathematical model that could determine the calculation of important parameters involved in the design of hydraulic fracturing and to run several case studies to verify and validate the mathematical model. Mathematical model for hydraulic fracturing design was developed using Microsoft Excel Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). In this report, literature review was done which covers the theory and general overview of hydraulic fracturing; the history of hydraulic fracturing, process of hydraulic fracturing as well as hydraulic fracturing design parameters. Research was also done on hydraulic fracturing calculations and equations involve in its design. Project methodology and activities have been developed and the milestones for this project have been planned for Final Year Project 1 and Final Year Project 2. The Gantt Chart and key milestones for FYP I and FYP II were attached in the report in order to make sure that the project run smoothly according to its plan and schedule. Mathematical model for hydraulic fracturing design was completely developed. Case studies were conducted to verify and validate the mathematical model. Mathematical model verifications for hydraulic fracturing design have established a range of 0 to 2.6% of percentage differences between the calculated values in the model and manual hand calculation while mathematical model validation have established a range of 0 to 17% of percentage differences between the calculated values and the field data values.
