Geologists, geophysicists, and reservoir engineers who need to characterize and develop fractured reservoirs and to understand the effects of different natural fractures types on reservoir permeability systems. The course will be useful to geoscientists involved in clastic, carbonate, shale, and unconventional plays where fractures are a major contributor to reservoir permeability.
Participant in this course will:
Utilizing case studies and our teaching collection of over 50 of natural and drilling-induced fractures from core and outcrops, this class provides a detailed appreciation for the significant variability in characteristics, origin, and effects of the different fracture types found in hydrocarbon reservoirs. Class modules include discussions of fracture mechanics and fractures due to folding on anticlines as well as case studies of fracture parameters such as spacing, height, and aperture. Hands-on class exercises illustrate how to optimize data collection from natural fracture systems in oriented and un-oriented cores.
