Title: Ultimate Recovery from Hydraulic Fracturing: ABSTRACT

Author(s): J. B. Campbell

Article Type: Meeting abstract


After approximately eight years of use by the oil industry, hydraulic fracturing of formations has been generally accepted as a means of production stimulation. The experience of one major company in the Mid-Continent area shows that this fracturing increases the ultimate recovery of oil. This study is based on reconditioning treatments of wells in semi-depleted reservoirs where ultimate recovery can be accurately evaluated from production decline curves, and examples are given.
