The characterization and modelling of a basement field in Yemen was achieved through the creation of a reservoir model. This reservoir model consistently integrates the available data, 2D seismic lines, borehole interpreted images, classical log suit and core data to allow capturing flow characteristics and establishing relevant production forecasts for the field development. Considering the geological context of this field, a particular attention has been given to characterize the fracture network and its associated flow behaviour. This paper describes the implemented approach starting with the creation of a structural model. Then the analysis of fracturing related data that lead to the development of a conceptual model for the fracture network. Finally the realisation of a Discrete Fracture Network DFN model in accordance to the developed concept and calibrated towards dynamic data allowed establishing key production characteristics of the field.
