Benefiting from 15 years of research and consulting on Fractured Reservoirs in the world, Beicip-Franlab and the IFP release FracaFlow, the most advanced package for fractured reservoir characterization, modeling and calibration on the market.
FracaFlow is the only package on the market to provide all the necessary tools to assess Fractured Reservoirs, from the largest Characterization tools range to secondary porosity and permeability computation. It enables geologists and reservoir engineers to pragmatically understand the impact of fractures and their associated uncertainties.
FracaFlow embeds the best tools to make you understand the current Fracture network affecting the reservoir.
From regional faults to smallest fractures, FracaFlow builds the most geologically consistent fracture networks, constrained in 3D by any seismic or geological attributes.
Some parameters like aperture, length and conductivity cannot be observed directly at well. FracaFlow enables calibrating these parameters by simulating the model KH, or flowmeter logs or even well tests signature to make the model reproduce the observed data.
To provide the simulator with secondary porosity and permeability as well as shape factor, FracaFlow performs a “fracture network” upscaling that may be either analytical or numerical for better fitting with the model needs.
Amongst the amount of Naturally fractured reservoirs that are studied at Beicip-Franlab, FracaFlow in its latest version has recently been used for characterizing and building a calibrated model of a complex tight gas reservoir in the Middle East region.
FracaFlow was first used to carefully analyze fractures at well, and identify the different fracture sets.
It also helped to point fault locations and constrain fracture density relatively to the faults as well seismic attributes and matrix properties.
After having created the current state of the Fracture and Fault Network, simulating flowmeters and well tests inside this numerical fracture network allowed to calibrate apertures and conductivities
of Fractures and Faults.
Finally Fracture network and matrix were both upscaled so as to be simulated in dual medium. The whole study drastically helped production plan decision making and has since been verified by field observations.
