Fracture and In-Situ Stress Characterization of Hydrocarbon by Geological Society Publishing

By Geological Society Publishing

This booklet introduces the newly built, built-in self-discipline of fracture and in-situ rigidity characterization of hydrocarbon reservoirs, via sixteen well-illustrated case experiences. those disguise quite a lot of instruments, from borehole scale (logs and middle) to reservoir scale (e.g. 3-D and 4-D seismic). It additionally covers floor reports (outcrop and distant sensing). moreover, it addresses the effect of fractures and in-situ stresses on fluid flows and their simulation. the topic that this quantity offers with is gaining expanding curiosity with the development of applied sciences and transferring limitations of marginal fields into more difficult floor. Fractures and their reaction to current-day in-situ stresses became a very important a part of reservoir characterization in deep tight reservoirs. additionally, maturing reservoirs, which have been regarded as 'conventional' at discovery, are exhibiting indicators attribute of fractures and/or geomechanical contribution. This has bring about the necessity to delineate the fractures and the stresses in those reservoirs and revise reservoir administration for this reason. This quantity should be of curiosity to a vast variety of readers from either educational and commercial institutes, who're studying and working with hydrocarbon reservoir characterization, simulation and administration.

Empire Forestry and the Origins of Environmentalism

Environmentalism all started with the institution of the 1st empire woodland in 1855 in British India. throughout the moment half the 19th century, over ten in keeping with cent of the land floor of the earth grew to become safe as a public belief. The empire forestry flow unfold via India, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the U.

Fluid Flow and Solute Movement in Sandstones: the Onshore UK Permo-Triassic Red Bed Sequence (Geological Society Special Publication No. 263)

Sandstone aquifers are universal around the globe: they comprise an important share of the Earth's clean water provides. despite the fact that, as a result of their textural complexity and the common incidence of either matrix and fracture circulation, prediction of circulation and pollutant migration remains to be a substantial problem.

Participation in Fisheries Governance (Reviews: Methods and Technologies in Fish Biology and Fisheries)

The primary message of the booklet is that stakeholder participation within the governance of fisheries is helpful, yet confers tasks in addition to rights: all stakeholders have a public accountability to behave as stewards of the marine setting. With chapters through top students and contributors in fisheries governance, this e-book recounts modern suggestions of public participation, and develops a brand new idea of environmental stewardship as a sort of fisheries governance.

Energy Efficiency: Benefits for Environment and Society

This booklet discusses how strength potency merits the worldwide setting, nationwide strength protection, neighborhood pollutants mitigation, ordinary source conservation, and application invoice aid. furthermore, this ebook presents many hands-on abilities and information to spot and strengthen strength potency tasks.

Example text

Obviously, cemented fractures are not part of the porosity network; however they could represent the starting point for quantitative sensitivity on the aperture of the producing fracture network. This issue is very critical, the aperture being controlled by many factors and in particular by the in situ stress orientation and intensity and by the reservoir fluid pressure. As 'true' data on fracture aperture are not available and collectable, a trial-and-error approach seems to be the most reasonable way to investigate the phenomenon.

There are also critically stressed faults in the Brown Shale where the flowmeter survey indicated significant flow. However, as the flowmeter survey did not cover both formations, it is not clear what the response would have been in the most productive section of the Antelope Shale and the respective abundance of critically stressed faults. Discussion The Antelope Shale at Chico Martinez Creek (Dholakia et al. 1998) serves as a surface analogue to the subsurface reservoir at Buena Vista Hills field.
