In this paper we present the results of several test cases showing the influence of injection rate and fluid viscosity on the generated hydraulic fracture footprint in formations with preexisting natural fractures. The influence of the stress field anisotropy, intersection angle, as well as natural fractures properties are also important and are discussed. The results are then compared with the simulations using a crossing model which does not account for the influence of fluid properties.
