Abstract

Fractures are ubiquitous structures occuring in a wide variety of rock types and tectonic settings over a broad range of<br>scales. The permeability of these structural heterogeneities may, on average, be a few orders of magnitude higher or<br>lower than those of the surrounding matrix rocks. Consequently, fractures and faults in rocks are essential elements of<br>hydrocarbon migration and Ãow, as well as entrapment Aydin, 2000. For that reason, the knowledge and modeling of<br>the geometry and properties of individual fractures and of the fracture pattern are critical to better assess oil recovery<br>and to optimize production of naturally fractured reservoirs.
