Fracturing/pressure pumping

The second edition of the SPE International Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition opened in Muscat, Oman, yesterday with more than 395 oil and gas professionals from 90 companies and 28 countries.
Even though total produced volumes are projected to hit new record highs in the coming years, treated water is expected to be comparatively lower than in the past, despite water disposal practices increasing oilfield seismic activity, with earthquakes nearly doubling in West Texas alone in 2021.
It appears to be possible to sense how fractures change during production using ultrasensitive fiber-optic strain measurements.
