Mr. Blauer was one of the first engineers to integrate fracture design with optimized economic well performance on an entire field. He has created and installed several systems to implement economic fracture optimization and has conducted training courses to familiarize Resource Services’ clients in the routine application of such systems. He has given short courses in foam rheology, foam fracturing, hydraulic fracture design and optimization, and the integration of fracture and reservoir optimization. Mr. Blauer is recognized in the industry for his innovative use of state-of-the-art technology in solving practical problems for Resource Services’ clients.
