Multidisciplinary integration is common in the petroleum industry and is critical for the success of many projects. This paper discusses the need for and importance of multidisciplinary integration of data inputs for the success of hydraulic fracturing treatments in unconventional reservoirs, specifically tight-gas sands and shale systems. Four main areas are discussed, including microseismic, field-wide seismic, petrophysical rock properties, and geological characterization. A discussion of future areas for integration is also provided.
