Understanding Naturally Fractured Rocks
Who Should Attend
Geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers working in either conventional or unconventional naturally fractured reservoirs, in either Plains or Foothills. Some completion or production engineers, and some managers, also may find it useful.
This short course should enable participants to:
- Understand the relationships between stress state, rock mechanical properties and fluid pressure in fracture system development and reactivation.
- Understand the characterization and description of fracture systems, both from abundant outcrop analog examples, and from subsurface examples using
different tools and data sets.
- Assess qualitatively the likely impact of fracture system character on fluid flow.
- Recognize the uncertainties and challenges in predicting fracture presence, character and impact on fluid flow at the reservoir scale.
