Mangrove engineered stimulation design in the Petrel platform is the only hydraulic fracturing simulator that seamlessly integrates petrophysical analysis, complex fracture engines, and comprehensive geomechanics in a comprehensive, end-to-end workflow. With a 3D finite-element geomechanical simulator, Mangrove design enables operators to simulate fracture initiation and diversion, as well as all geomechanical changes during fracturing and production, so they can make critical decisions to maximize production.
Through the industry-leading Petrel E&P software platform, Mangrove stimulation design integrates geological and geophysical (G&G), petrophysical, geomechanical, and microseismic data.
An integrated completion and fracturing approach improved recovery compared with offset wells in the Ordos basin.

The design is now available under cloud subscription, which provides customers with unprecedented flexibility, removes most barriers related to IT assets, and empowers users to carry out sensitivity studies in a single day that ordinarily require a month to complete.
Mangrove stimulation design workflow provides estimates of proppant placement, fracture network dimensions, and reservoir penetration based on properties such as rheology, leakoff pressure, friction performance, permeability, and closure stress.
Real-time data, such as that acquired by StimMAP hydraulic fracture mapping service, can be compared to simulated results to optimize treatments as they are being performed. These comparisons help improve well planning and reduce operational risks.
