Naturally Fractured Reservoirs

Course Outline

Approximately 85 percent of the course will be devoted to the relationship between geology, log interpretation, well testing, and primary-secondary recovery of naturally fractured reservoirs. Techniques published recently by the instructor for determination of flow units, rock fabric, pore throat aperture, permeability, capillary pressure and height above the free water table, as well as a new triple porosity model for petrophysical analysis of naturally fractured reservoirs are covered in class.
