.... Shale gas production in China has met a surge in the number of drilling wells. Those new wells were characterized by a relatively low gas production rate (<1×10 6 m 3 /d) in comparison with shale gas wells in the US. As a result, flaring gas during well completion needs to be recycled or used...

In unconventional resources, an improper choke-management strategy may trigger proppant crushing or the flowback of proppant, resulting in fracture closure and loss of production. In frac packs and high-rate water packs, an abrupt increase in the rate (or drawdown) may induce...
