Hydraulic fracturing is a technique to enhance hydrocarbon production by inducing fracture(s) into reservoir rock. A fracture is induced by injecting fluid into the reservoir at pressures greater than the formation breakdown pressure. The fracture(s) geometry, mode, initiation and propagation...

Canada has giant oil reserves which ranks third worldwide with proven oil reserves of 171 billion barrels. Alberta alone contributes with 165.4 billion barrels found in oil sands. However, those oil sands are extremely viscous and only 10% are recoverable by means of open-pit mining. In-situ...
