Key words: : injection, auto-frac, fracture opening pressure.

The authors present a method of flooding process control as a result of the complex system analysis of carried out specialized well testing. We considered several approaches which allow to determine the optimal mode of operation for any injection well when certain formation reservoir properties are known.
