Geomechanics research of oriented refracturing development conditions

Authors: Yu.A. Kashnikov, S.G. Ashihmin, O.Yu. Smetannikov, D.V. Shustov (Perm National Research Polytechnic University, RF, Perm)

Keywords: hydraulic fracture, geomechanics, major and minor horizontal stresses.

Theoretical justification of oriented re-fracturing treatments is presented in this work. The principal possibility of this method is confirmed. Re-fracturing crack development calculations in an anisotropic horizontal stress field also presented.
