Oilfield service companies fracture a well involving pumping a fracturing fluid containing proppant into a well and into an oil or gas reservoir generally using high rate and pressure. Pumping continues until fractures are initiated and desired fracture geometry is achieved.
The proppants, which are suspended in the fracturing fluid, are injected into the fractures in the rock to prop these fractures open after the fracture fluid is recovered.
The resulting proppant pack provides a highly conductive pathway for fluids to flow from the reservoir into the wellbore.
