Abstract:   

Tests designed to provide reservoir and geomechanical parameters needed for hydraulic fracture design include minifrac, diagnostic fracture injection test (DFIT), and microfrac. The minifrac and DFIT are typically associated with fracture injection testing performed during the completion of the well and frequently used prior to hydraulic fracture completions in cased hole environments. MicroFrac is associated with wireline formation testing in openhole environments using much lower injection flow rates, volumes and shorter testing times. This presentation will illustrate with data the differences between these tests and which parameters each test can reveal. It will also explore ways that modern technologies might improve on traditional testing approaches.
