Finding Optimal Hydraulic-Fracture Angles in Productivity-Maximized Shale Well Design
This study provides a model for the inclined fracture case. It applies and further extends the unified-fracture-design approach for rectangular drainage areas, relating the dimensionless proppant number to the maximum productivity index in pseudosteady-state conditions.
