Continuous Fracture Modeling: Predicting the Direction of Fractures

What is the nature of fracture systems and their impact on reservoir quality and ultimate recoverable reserves? The types of fracture systems will be reviewed with the goal of discussing ways to measure, model, and predict fractures and fracture systems. In this AAPG E-Symposium on February 16 at 2 pm CST, Ahmed Ouenes will be discussing ways to measure, model, and predict fractures and fracture systems.

Key Topics:
• Complex natural fracture systems (Maloichskoe field / West Siberian basin case)
• Fractured carbonates, with low matrix flow properties
• Orientation of fractures: prediction / determination
• Location of fractures: prediction / determination / decision-making (drilling / stimulation)
• Density of fractures
• Decision-making using fracture modeling / prediction:
• Drilling locations
• Drilling fluids
• Stimulation
• Reservoir Modeling / characterization

Structure of the E-Symposium
Each e-symposium consists of one-hour live e-symposium, along with material for one full day of independent study. The live portion will be followed by a full day of independent study (not a live event). The one-hour live e-symposium can be accessed from any computer anywhere in the world using a high-speed internet connection. After the event is over, you will receive via email information about accessing the asynchronous segment (not live) which consists of your independent study materials, to be accessed and studied at any time. You will be able to email responses to the readings, along with your study question answers for CEU credit (if you sign up for the extended package).
