The Role

Role Description

Title: Natural Fracture Corridor Modelling Project
•The main objective of the project was to test the functionality of a prototype Petrel plug-in that allows modeling of classic bi-wing natural fractures.
• The existing approach prior to the creation of the plugin was to construct a model wherein fractures are placed using traditional modeling techniques such as Grid Refinements. In the new approach, an extension to Petrel has been made that allows the creation of natural fractures.
• The suitability, practicality and performance of this new approach were verified by comparing the results with the existing approach to model these fractures.
Outcome – The new technique was demonstrated to be a practical technique to simulate the naturally fractured reservoir. It showed several advantages like less simulation and engineering time.
