Mechanical and Hydraulic Aspects of Rock-Proppant Systems : Laboratory Experiments and Modelling Approaches

Andreas Reinicke
[...] In context of this work, a new damage mechanism is proposed: the mechanically inducedfracture face skin. This new mechanism results from mechanical interactions between the proppants and the reservoir rock, due to the increasing stress on the rock-proppant system during production. Proppant embedment into the fracture face and proppant crushing leads to fines production and can impair the fracture performance. In order to achieve sustainable, longterm productivity from a reservoir, it is indispensable to...
