This webinar will demonstrate setting-up a hydraulic fracturing model in XSite and review the simulation results. The model consists of two boreholes with two stages in a fractured rock mass. Each stage consists of four perforation clusters.
A background on XSite and its methodology and a comparison between results of simulation of several cases with varying pre-existing fracture properties, including one with no pre-existing fractures will also be presented.
Time: Fri, Nov 13, 2020 12:00 AM - 1:00 AM CST (北京时间：2020年11月14日周六，01 — 02点)

XSite is a powerful three-dimensional hydraulic fracturing numerical simulation program based on the Synthetic Rock Mass (SRM) and Lattice methods. XSite is capable of modeling multiple wellbores with multiple stages and clusters, including open-hole completions and perforation tunnels. XSite resolves general hydraulic fracture interaction, including propagation in naturally fractured reservoirs with deterministically or stochastically generated discrete fracture networks (DFNs). The models conduct fully coupled hydro-mechanical simulations. Fluid flow is simulated as fracture flow within the joint networks and as matrix flow within the intact rock. Proppant transport and placement logic are included. Proppant affects fracture closure and fracture conductivity. General pumping schedules can be simulated with switching injected Newtonian or power-law fluids. The borehole flow is coupled with the rest of the model to determine distribution of fluid between multiple clusters. Synthetic microseismicity can be tracked and recorded.
