By L. Lonergan, R. J. H. Jolly, K. Rawnsley, D. J. Sanderson

Fractured reservoirs comprise an important percentage of the worldwide hydrocarbon reserves; in spite of the fact that, they regularly convey unpredictable and severe construction behaviour. To advance such reservoirs it's important to procure the easiest figuring out attainable of the fracture community and its impression at the fluid move in the reservoir, utilizing the total variety of geoscience and engineering datasets on hand in any respect scales. This ebook provides an outline of present strategies and the most recent applied sciences used to appreciate and make the most fractured reservoirs. The contributions are equipped into sections on outcrop analogues, the appliance of geophysical ideas for fracture detection and imaging, numerical and analogue modelling and case reviews from fields within the heart East, Europe and North the USA. the various case reviews additionally examine methods of assessing uncertainties in fracture geometry description and the consequences for powerful reservoir management.Also to be had: Geometry and Petrogenesis of Dolomite Hydrocarbon Reservoirs - ISBN 1862391661 The Initiation, Propagation, And Arrests of Joints And different Fractures - ISBN 1862391653 Fracture And In-situ tension Characterisation of Hydrocarbon Reservoirs - ISBN1862391300
