Paper presented at the 55th U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 18–25, 2021
Paper Number: ARMA-2021-1129
... ABSTRACT: It is essential to know about any adverse interactions between a shale and fracturing fluid additives. Some frac fluids can alter shale rock petrophysical properties and this can lead to shale softening and fines generation. The softer the shale, the more proppant embedment...
