Several two-phase flow experiments in the presence of a fracture tip were performed in the past.
At the present time, we are developing an inverse process using a simulation model to understand
the fluid flow patterns in the presence of a fracture, and the interactions between fluid flow in the
fracture and the adjacent matrix. Preliminary results demonstrate that the flow patterns are
significantly impacted by the presence of the fracture. Bypassing is quantified and we expect to
be able to extract from the modeling the distribution of properties in the fracture and the adjacent
Here’s what’s next.
