Abstract: This manual compiles various aspects of mini-frac testing and in-situ stress measurement techniques for easy accessibility by the users. The objectives of this manual are to: (a) describe the state of the art of mini-frac tests; (b) emphasize their importance; (c) discuss possible differences of the tests in porous and non-porous formations; (d) recommend procedures for field testing, analysis, and interpretation; (e) indicate the limitations of the technique; and (f) compare mini-frac tests with the other in-situ stress measurement techniques.
