Samuel A. Flewelling, Matthew P. Tymchak and Norm Warpinski Hydraulic fracture height limits and fault interactions in tight oil and gas formations Geophysical Research Letters 40

Article first published online: 26 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/grl.50707

Key Points

  • Hydraulic fracture heights are limited by pumped fluid volume
  • Induced fault-slip areas are small and remain near the zone of fractured rock
  • Groundwater contamination via induced fractures and faults is extremely unlikely
