of Work: Task 4.2 Simulation of Fractured
task, we will develop the discrete fracture
modeling approach through application to Yates
field data. These efforts will be limited to a
small portion or limited aspects of the project
area but are critical to illustrate the
quantitative value of fracture network
characterization. Dual porosity, dual
permeability, multi-phase simulation will be used
Task 4.2.1 Model
In this task, site characterization and
hydraulic response data from the Yates field
study site will be incorporated into a numerical
model for reservoir simulation.
Task 4.2.2 Reservoir
In this task, reservoir simulations will be
carried out to demonstrate the application of the
discrete fracture approach at the Yates field.
Fracture network realizations will be tested with
reservoir simulation in efforts to match observed
field performance data.
