86 | August 2018 | HYDRAULIC FRACTURING: CASE STUDIES more reliable, confidence-building measurements compared with the conventional methods. As additional confirma- tion of the validity of this physics-based approach with the new fracture map technology, the operator's team compared all of the completion results with the production data. The production data confirmed the conclusions from the pressure-based fracture map analysis. The pressure-based frac- ture map offers the industry a new diagnostic means to validate a completion design on every well with minimum operational risk and cost. The simple, accurate, afford- able pressure-based fracture map enables operators, as described in this case study, to make informed, better completion decisions. n FIGURE 2.
