• Fracture diagnostics using low frequency electromagnetic induction 

    Basu, Saptaswa (2014-05)
    Currently microseismic monitoring is widely used for fracture diagnosis. Since the method monitors the propagation of shear failure events, it is an indirect measure of the propped fracture geometry. Our primary interest ...
  • Study on the feasibility of using electromagnetic methods for fracture diagnostics 

    Saliés, Natália Gastão (2012-08)
    This thesis explores two ways of developing a fracture diagnostics tool capable of estimating hydraulic fracture propped length and orientation. Both approaches make use of an electrically conductive proppant. The fabrication ...
  • Water hammer fracture diagnostics 

    Carey, Michael Andrew (2014-12)
    A sudden change in flow in a confined system results in the formation of a series of pressure pulses known as a water hammer. Pump shutdown at the conclusion of a hydraulic fracture treatment frequently generates a water ...
