    Geomechanical Modeling of Hydraulic Fractures Interacting with Natural Fractures — Validation with Microseismic and Tracer Data From the Marcellus and Eagle Ford.Yamina E. Aimene & Ahmed Ouenes - 2015 - Interpretation: SEG 3 (3):SU71-SU88.
    We have developed a new geomechanical workflow to study the mechanics of hydraulic fracturing in naturally fractured unconventional reservoirs. This workflow used the material point method for computational mechanics and an equivalent fracture model derived from continuous fracture modeling to represent natural fractures. We first used the workflow to test the effect of different stress anisotropies on the propagation path of a single NF intersected by a hydraulic fracture. In these elementary studies, increasing the stress anisotropy was found to decrease (...)

    Using Geomechanical Modeling to Quantify the Impact of Natural Fractures on Well Performance and Microseismicity: Application to the Wolfcamp, Permian Basin, Reagan County, Texas.Ahmed Ouenes, Nicholas M. Umholtz & Yamina E. Aimene - 2016 - Interpretation: SEG 4 (2):SE1-SE15.
    We have evaluated workflows to quantify the mechanical impact of natural fractures on the production performance of hydraulically stimulated stages in shale wells. Variations in fracture orientation and density can enhance or degrade the transport and effectiveness of fracturing fluids. Specifically, we studied the effect of a complex fault splay system on a horizontal Wolfcamp B reservoir well. A general workflow that combines geophysics, geology, and geomechanics was evaluated and applied to the well. The benefits of the 3G workflow are (...)
