  • Publication number: 20210230475
    Abstract: A method of hydraulic fracturing may comprise mixing at least one liquid sand mixture with a fluid to produce a fracturing fluid; and conveying the fracturing fluid to two or more wellbores simultaneously, wherein the wellbores penetrate a subterranean formation.

  • Publication number: 20200370405
    Abstract: Systems and methods for treating subterranean formations using proppants. More particularly, the systems and methods use sand or other particles having a wide particle-size distribution as a proppant for treating subterranean formations, including unconventional formations. In some embodiments, the methods comprise: providing a treatment fluid comprising a base fluid and unsieved proppant material; introducing the treatment fluid into a well bore penetrating at least a portion of a subterranean formation; and depositing at least a portion of the unsieved proppant material in at least a portion of the subterranean formation.

  • Publication number: 20200208499
    Abstract: Methods and systems are disclosed for systemically generating complexity throughout a formation. The system and methods include defining a diverter schedule including a set of diverters to be pumped into a wellbore over a duration of time. A first diverter is pumped into the wellbore based on the diverter schedule, the first diverter including matter corresponding to a first mesh value. An onset of pressure response value is measured using a pressure sensor during or after pumping the first diverter into the wellbore. A next diverter including particles corresponding to a second mesh value is selected using the onset of pressure response value and the diverter schedule. The next diverter then pumped into the wellbore.

  • Publication number: 20190383126
    Abstract: A method comprises creating a fracture network extending from a wellbore into a subterranean formation; then, introducing a series of fluids into the fracture network in a subterranean formation, thereby forming a proppant pack in the fracture network, wherein the series of fluids comprise: a microproppant slurry comprising a microproppant having an average diameter less than about 25 microns; a proppant slurry comprising a proppant having an average diameter of about 75 microns to about 500 microns; and a sweep fluid having a microproppant weight percentage by weight of the sweep fluid that is from 0 to about the same of the microproppant weight percentage in the microproppant slurry by weight of the microproppant slurry; and wherein introduction of the microproppant slurry is not immediately followed by introduction of the proppant slurry, and wherein introduction of the proppant slurry is not immediately followed by introduction of the microproppant slurry.
