O-12 INVESTIGATING MATRIX & FRACTURE FLOW – INITIAL STUDIES FOR FRACTURE UPSCALING Abstract 1 MARK A. REYNOLDS GARY D. COUPLES GILLIAN E. PICKUP and HELEN LEWIS Department of Petroleum Engineering Heriot - Watt University Edinburgh EH14 4AS UK While trying to develop upscaling methods for simulating multi - phase flow in fractured reservoirs we have been exploring a variety of simulation techniques. One of our prime objectives is to ensure that the methods capture the physics of fluid flow. On the small - scale (cm) our preliminary assessment of the standard “dual porosity / dual permeability” method is that it
