Fracture Iidentification Techniques in Carbonates


Bob Dennis, Eric Standen, Schlumberger


To optimize production in naturally fractured carbonates, it is important to locate and describe these fractures insitu. A combination of log measurements , core data and pro- duction surveys can be employed to locate and orient the fractures and assess their overall contribution to reservoir performance in fractured formations.
