With the comprehensive capabilities engineered into industry-leading FRACPRO and STIMPRO software, effective training is essential to get the most from your investment.
Learn to optimize the software’s powerful capabilities
Please join the industry-acknowledged experts from CARBO in a course designed to provide both the background fundamentals of hydraulic fracturing and “hands on” software training in the design and analysis of fracture treatments. These three-day courses are scheduled for mid-week to allow you time for travel and office duties. The course is limited to 15 participants and each student will need a laptop computer.
Fracture analysis course benefits
The course concentrates on the design and analysis of hydraulic fracturing treatments using real-world examples ranging from horizontal shale completions in the U.S. to moderately permeable chalk reservoirs in the North Sea to high permeability offshore frac-pack completions.
At the conclusion of the class each student will be capable of using the FRACPRO software system to build a reliable earth model and to design and evaluate hydraulic fracture treatments in a wide variety of environments. In addition, students will have a basic understanding of production forecasting and history matching using the software.
