Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2014032003A1] A system and method is provided for performing a fracturing operation about a wellbore penetrating a subterranean formation. The method may acquire integrated wellsite data. The method may generate a mechanical earth model using the integrated wellsite data. The method may simulate an intersection of an induced hydraulic fracture with a natural fracture using the mechanical earth model. The method may determine intersection properties of the intersected natural fracture. The method may also generate a stimulation plan using the mechanical earth model and the intersection properties. The stimulation plan may include a fluid viscosity or a rate of injection of a fracturing fluid.
