The relevance of the research is specified by the significant contribution of the oil produced as a result of hydraulic fracturing in the wells in its total production. A correct assessment of the results of actually carried out hydraulic fracturing will allow to develop clear recommendations on the further application of this method of oil production enhancement for the geological and physical conditions of specific fields. It was established that hydraulic fracturing in the well 221 of the Shershnevsky field (the Perm Territory, Russia) led to a change in interaction between wells within the entire element of the development system; it began to work as a single coordinated system. As a result of hydraulic fracturing, there was not just a redistribution of fluid drainage volumes. A synergistic effect arose when fracturing in one well led to an increase in fluid flow rates and coordinated operation of the entire element of the development system. It is likely that hydraulic fracturing in the well 221 led to a significant change in the geological and technological characteristics of the Bobrikovskian deposit of the Shershnevsky field to a greater extent than the volume of the drainage zone of this well. A whole system of channels with reduced filtration resistances appeared instead of a single crack, as is common in the classic representation of hydraulic fracturing.

It should be noted that the approach presented in the article is the first very important step in a comprehensive analysis of the effective reservoir development based on the results of field monitoring. In the future, it is necessary to attract more detailed information about the interaction of wells. Only such a multilevel analysis will allow to substantiate the general conclusion about the hydraulic fracturing on the development of a reservoir and to confirm conclusively the effect of wells on each other, which can be individual in different parts of the reservoir.
