Fracture Modeling:


Effect of fractures on flow mechanism within reservoir is captured in this study. Various source of information including drilling, core data, FMI, geological interpretations, seismic data, petrophysical informations, RFT, MDT, DST and PT are employed to generate accurate dynamic characteristics of the reservoir. Fracture or deformation indicators are fully investigated from all available data to identify fracture density, connectivity and orientation. Fracture density and orientation can be extracted from seismic data. Final step is to integrate fracture model into 3D properties.

Development of a numerical model should be an iterative process between static modeling and dynamic simulation. It begins with development of a conceptual model, which, in turn, is used to formulate a numerical model of the flow system.

The predicted behavior is compared to the actual behavior of the flow system as determined from field observations. If the predicted and observed behaviors do not match, static model is reevaluated and updated, and the process is repeated.
