Understanding Hydraulic Fracturing

Hydraulic fracturing (often referred to in the media as ‘fracking’) is a well stimulation process used to maximise the extraction of subsurface resources; including oil, natural gas, geothermal energy, and even water. In recent years the technology has come to be associated in the public eye with fears of widespread change to landscapes and communities in the vicinity of its use, and environmental and human health impacts. The purpose of this presentation is to provide an understanding of the technology from the perspective of engineers who work hard to design effective treatments that will deliver the increased well productivity that fracture stimulation is designed for, whilst also, as in all engineering design, managing and avoiding the relevant potential risks.

Elham is a Chartered Petroleum Engineer with more than 20 years of technical and operational experience. He has extensive global experience in the design and evaluation of stimulation treatments.

National Engineering Register

The National Engineering Register (NER) has been created by Engineers Australia to provide a means of presenting registered engineers and their services to the public. It also provides assurance to consumers that engineers engaged from the NER meet the high standards of professionalism expected in the engineering profession. The NER is available to everyone and allows consumers to search for a qualified engineering professional by name, area of practice and geographic location. The NER is available to everyone and allows consumers to search for a qualified engineering professional by name, area of practice and geographic location. This enhanced service replaces the National Professional Engineering Register (NPER), the National Engineering Technologists Register (NETR) and the National Engineering Associates Register (NEAR).
