AAPG Fundamentals Education Conference | Rock/Fluid Interactions and Natural Fracture Development and Alteration | November 2015 | Houston, TX

The Keys to Fracture(d) Relationships (in O&G Exploration)

Published
American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

AAPG's short course, "Rock/Fluid Interactions and Natural Fracture Development and Alteration", provides a practical approach to defining reservoir fluid and pressure related natural fracture generation and fracture property alteration in conventional and unconventional reservoirs. This course is part of AAPG Fundamentals Education Conference, taking place November 9-13, in Houston, TX.

A well-known industry expert, Dr. Ron Nelson, discusses the interaction of pre-existing natural fractures and hydraulic fracture injected fluids. Suggestions will be made to constraining Discrete Fracture Network & Non-Discrete Fracture Network Models. Participants can expect to learn how to:

  • Determine which observed surface and subsurface fractures are real and related to diagenesis due to fluids and pressures and not of structural or tectonic origin.
  • Assign the mechanism of generation for these disparate fractures.
  • Predict the 3D distribution of these fractures throughout the reservoir.
  • Fit alteration of natural fractures into a paragenetic sequence.
  • Anticipate possible diagenetic fluid and oil & gas migration pathways within reservoirs.
  • And much more!

Time is running out.......Early-bird rates expire OCT 11!
