About the book

Hydraulic fracturing is a process normally employed to induce flow during reservoir oil and gas production. It is commonly used in unconventional gas production, enhanced oil and gas recovery (EOR), and enhanced coal bed methane (ECBM) recovery. The underlying concept of hydraulic fracturing is the creation of fractures in reservoir rocks by injecting high volumes of high pressured fluids so as to stimulate flow.

The mechanisms of hydraulic fracturing are complex, and so are the tools and operation techniques required to successfully and effectively integrate the process during oil and gas production.

This books explores the various components of hydraulic fracturing by illustrating the principles and concepts that form the theoretical framework, and the operational procedures employed in real-life field practice. A simplified approach is adopted to encourage readers who are seeking information on the fundamental principles and how these relate to field-scale applications. It is a functional resource for students, academics and industry practitioners.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
