Hydraulic Fracturing

Increase oil and gas recovery

When you’re working with deep oil and gas reservoirs with low porosity or permeability, the hydraulic fracturing job must be faultless. Using Baker Hughes hydraulic fracturing software allows you to fully visualize even the most complex fracture geometries and distributions. We have a complete suite of software tools for detailed history matching and fracture optimization studies. Receive real-time 3D fracture geometry, including data on acid fracturing, wellbore heat transfer, proppant transport, and perforation erosion.

MFrac™ Suite is a complete suite of proven programs covering a wide range of stimulation and petroleum engineering applications, including hydraulic fracturing, minifrac analysis, well production analysis, and real-time data acquisition. Available since 1985, our MFrac Suite is the industry’s most reliable fracture stimulation software. Get the insight you need to target the most productive zones, determine effective fracture treatments, and monitor reservoir stimulation in real time.


MFrac Design and Evaluation Simulator

The fully coupled proppant transport and heat transfer routines enable you to use the application for fracture design and treatment analysis.


MShale Natural Fracture Simulator

Predict fracture propagation and extent in fractured and naturally fractured reservoirs.


MPwri Produced Water Reinjection Simulator

This application was specifically designed for evaluating the effects of injecting large volumes of fluid over long periods of time with fracture efficiencies approaching zero.


MWell Wellbore Hydraulics Simulator

Calculate surface and/or bottomhole pressures, gravitational head, restrictions, transport times, and hydraulic power requirements in the wellbore.


MFast Fracturing Simulator

The methodology used in the simulator is comparable to a lumped analogy: The simulator uses constant coefficients derived from our design and evaluation simulator.


MView Data Management

Share real-time data or replay the dataset with four of our other hydraulic fracturing applications.


MNpv NPV and ROI

This application forecasts fractured well NPV and ROI for maximizing well profitability.


MinFrac Design and Analysis

The application examines rate/pressure data during/after injection, including pump-in/shut-in test stress determination, step-rate interpretation, and pressure decline analysis.


MProd Production Modeling

Our single-phase production simulator assesses the production for a variety of treatment scenarios using a comparison with unfractured wells.
