Multi-fracture propagation is a key capability required for the design of hydraulic fracture treatments in horizontal wells. It is also a key element of natural fracture pattern characterization. In shale, the interaction of hydraulic fractures in natural fractures is often a controlling factor in determining fracture network geometry. Insights into the range of fracture network geometries possible can come from geologic examples of natural fractures and from analog laboratory experiments of hydraulic fracturing.

In this work we discuss an approach for uncertainty propagation
through computationally expensive physics simulation
codes. Our approach incorporates gradient information information
to provide a higher quality surrogate with fewer simulation
results compared with derivative-free approaches.
