This course introduces basic geologic and engineering concepts, methodology and technology used to characterise, evaluate and manage naturally fractured reservoirs, with their limitations and constraints. It helps answering and understanding questions related to fractured reservoir performance during drilling, production and field development: What are the factors that control fractures behavior under activities of drilling, production and depletion? What are the impacts of such fractures on the reservoir development plans? How can we develop and optimise those reservoirs to enhance oil and gas recovery?
Case studies will be provided to demonstrate the importance of integrated geologic and engineering aspects in developing effective, economical reservoir management strategies for different types of reservoirs.
