Evaluation of Naturally Fractured Reservoirs
Discusses the origin and classification of natural fractures, and outlines methods for detecting and characterizing them. Discusses how the properties of fractured formations affect reservoir engineering considerations. Outlines general approaches to modeling fractured reservoirs, illustrating these approaches with several case studies.
Reservoir Management of Mature Fields
Introduces the concept of synergism in reservoir management, stressing an interdisciplinary approach as key to maximizing a field’s potential. Outlines data requirements and methodology for evaluating a mature reservoir. Discusses applied reservoir management from the standpoint of increasing reserves and monitoring performance, with special emphasis on waterflooding and enhanced oil recovery projects.
