Semi-analytical expression for the optimum fracture length is derived for single phase and two phase Darcy flow below and above the dew point pressure in which the effect of condensate banking was incorporated. Results showed that the proposed semi-analytical procedures reasonably coincided with the results obtained from the numerical simulation. These semi-analytical expressions, hence, can be used as simple and less-time consuming method to evaluate the optimum fracture lengths for gas-condensate systems.
