Petrel Fracture Modeling: Discrete Fracture Network Construction

The purpose of this course is the successful construction of a Discrete Fracture Network in Petrel, followed by the calculation of fracture porosity, permeability, and connectivity properties that can be used for a dual-porosity simulation. It additionally covers best practices, such as the creation and utilization of fracture drivers, to lower uncertainties of the model away from the wellbore. This is the second and final webinar in the Petrel Fracture modeling series.
