Abstract

This presentation introduces a new fractured reservoir simulation approach which combines concepts from discrete fracture network, discrete fracture and matrix, multi-rate dual-continua, and pore-network modelling. This approach provides a unique numerical laboratory that enables flow simulation experiments on outcrop-, sector-, and field-scale models, which capture the multi-scale and multi-physics nature of IOR and EOR processes in fractured carbonate formations. It allows us to analyse and quantify the interplay of viscous, gravity, and capillary forces, understand if and why commercially available simulation software fails to provide reliable forecasts, and determine the gaps that need to be closed to improve (commercially) available fractured reservoir modelling and simulation approaches.
