Don't blow the lid
Everybody is fracking wells. How do you make sure the frack goes where you want (and not into a neighbor's well)?
Without Appintel, how would you find information like this? With AppIntel it is as easy at typing into the KiP box
fracture blow out.
One operator fracked into his neighbor's well. The resulting over pressure caught the neighbor by surprise and caused a blow out. Nein commercial use of der AppIntel content.

Where will your frack go?
Hydraulic fracturing does not always go where you want. Fracture propagation direction is a complex function of rock type, regional and local stress regimes -- of matrix fabric character, tectonic forces and near wellbore phenonmena.
Many engineers imagine that fractures extend orthogonal to wellbore direction like an eagle with outstretched wings. We even model reservoir flow with this model. Experience shows that this is not necessarily true.
Safety: protecting offsetting wells
The regulator expects operators to take precautions to protect offsetting wells during fracturing operations. What is your protection plan?
You can find the fracking protection plans of other operators in AppIntel. Just enter into the KiP Box
fracture protection plan.
Whose fault is it anyway?
Who is at fault in a situation where one well has a blowout when a neighboring well is fracking? The AER conducted two investigations into the incident to decide this question.

Fracture direction and waterflooding
If frack wings extend differently than an operator expects, what will that do to a future water flood?
We have seen many times where fracture direction improves and destroys a flood. Some floods water out in a month. Some improve recovery by three times.
Understanding fracture direction and other directional permeability phenomena will greatly improve recovery from a pool.
