Streamline-Based Production-Data Integration in Naturally Fractured Reservoirs Academic Article uri icon


  • Streamline-based models have shown great potential in reconciling high-resolution geologic models with production data. Use of streamline-based production-data integration has been extended to naturally fractured reservoirs. A dual-porosity streamline model was used for fracture-flow simulation by treating the fracture and matrix as separate continua connected through a transfer function. The sensitivities that define the relationship between reservoir properties and the production response in fractured reservoirs were computed analytically. The production-data integration was carried out with a generalized travel-time inversion.
