Naturally fractured reservoirs (NFRs) have received much attention in the last decade because of low oil recovery in many of these reservoirs and the potential to improve oil recovery from such reservoirs. The presence of fractures often surrounded by an otherwise low-permeability matrix is a major oil-recovery issue. As a result, there has been a great amount of scientific activity to diagnose and characterize fractured reservoirs and to develop viable techniques to utilize the fractures effectively.
This Applied Technology Workshop (ATW) is aimed at bringing to light the most prominent methods of detecting, diagnosing, and characterizing fractures and fractured reservoirs using engineering, geological and geophysical techniques. The plan is also to show how this information is used in reservoir performance prediction and improved oil and gas recovery techniques.
