Petrel Fracture Modeling: Data Preparation

This course is focused on preparing the necessary fracture data in order to construct a Discrete Fracture Network in Petrel, including data import and the output of intensity properties per individual fracture sets. This short, 2-hour webinar combines lecture and live demonstration to walk the Petrel user through the import of fracture data, how to display and analyze, and finally, how to create 3D representations of fracture intensities that are used during the Discrete Fracture Network process. It is a pre-requisite to the Petrel Fracture Modeling: Discrete Fracture Network Construction webinar.

  • Geologists and geophysicists working in naturally fracture reservoirs

      •  Reservoir engineers wanting to understand how fracture properties are constructed
