Description

Hydraulic fracturing is nowadays a popular technique aimed at enhancing hydrocarbon and fresh water production. With the advent of tight and unconventional gas, it has been implemented on a large scale but at the same time its efficiency and the potential inherent environmental damages have been questioned. It has subsequently been banned in France. The industry is now looking at new alternatives, with enhanced efficiency and a better impact on the environment. Electro-hydraulic fracturing belongs to the pool of potential candidates.
This book presents the results of various studies and technical papers published between 2010 and 2015 on electro-hydraulic fracturing. The authors have chosen a critical approach which allows them to present both the advantages and the limitations of this method as compared to hydraulic fracturing, enabling the readers to be able to develop their own point of view about this technology.

Contents

1. Experiments in a Representative Environment.
2. Computational Modeling of the Process: Principles.
3. Validation of the Computational Model.
4. Computations on Representative Reservoir Geometries.
