This work presents the approaches used for the optimal placement and determination of parameters of hydraulic fractures in horizontal and multilateral wells in a low-permeability reservoir using various methods, including 3D modeling. The results of the production rate of a multilateral dualwellbore well are analyzed after the actual hydraulic fracturing performed on the basis of calculations. The advantages and disadvantages of modeling methods are evaluated, recommendations are given to improve the reliability of calculations for models with hydraulic fracturing (HF)/ multistage hydraulic fracturing (MHF).
