    Petrel Fracture Modeling

    The Petrel Fracture Modeling course covers the concepts of fracture modeling and their application in the oil industry in general and in the Petrel E&P software platform specifically. 

    The purpose of fracture modeling is to create simulation properties for matrix and fractures to predict reservoir behavior. Many reservoirs are dual-porosity/dual-permeability (naturally fractured), which leads to high flow zones that are not representative of the matrix flow capacity. Consequently, flow simulators have problems simulating these kind of reservoirs.

    In this course, the participants will learn how to import, visualize, QC and analyze fracture data before building a fracture network model consisting of a Discrete fracture network (DFN) and Implicit fracture properties (IFM). There will also be a brief overview of how the output fracture properties can be used for simulation.


    Development and exploration geologists, geophysicists, petroleum engineers, reservoir engineers and technical personnel with prior experience in Petrel.
