The Search for new sources of energy has always been motivated by both economical and political reasons. This made the oil and gas industry look into resources that was overlooked before. Shale gas reservoirs represent a huge potential for gas reserves. However, the production process from shale gas is very complex due to the low permeability and the dual porosity nature of shale formation. Many parameters affect the process which in turn make the optimization of these parameters a very complex process. This project aims to create a matlab program to solve for a model of equations to arrive at the optimal parameters for the fracturing stimulation. This program uses the unified fracture design model to calculate the optimum fracture width and length for maximum fracture conductivity. In this project, the fracturing process of the reservoir is analyzed while explaining the role of the proppant agent selection and the fracture width for an optimal productivity after the process. The selection of the proppant is also discussed to arrive to the best proppant selection based on the type, size and concentration of the proppant.
