The paper considers efficient development of Domanic reservoirs in Tatarstan using multistage fracturing technology in horizontal wells, based on the analysis of developing Shaly Carbonates in the United States, which are the closest in terms of geological and physical characteristics. Simulation in the software product GOHFER was carried out. Three types of multistage fracturing were considered: acid, proppant, and combined. Calculations show that practically all types of multistage fracturing with 5 stages are either not profitable, or are on the verge of profitability. Acid and combined multistage fracturing are the most effective at 10 stages; net discounted income for 5 years of operation is 90-100 million rubles. All three types of multistage fracturing are effective at 20 stages; acid and combined multistage fracturing are also characterized by the biggest net discounted income of 240-280 million rubles.
