Short summary
This work studies intensively the flow in fractures with finite hydraulic conductivity intersected by a well injecting/producing at constant pressure. We demonstrated that during the bilinear flow regime the transient propagation of isobars along the fracture is proportional to the fourth root of time. Moreover, we present relations to calculate the termination time of bilinear flow under constant injection/production well pressure. Our results can be utilized to estimate the fracture length.
