A Method To Implement Permeability Anisotropy Associated With Fault Damage Zones in Reservoir Simulation


In this study, we present a method to incorporate the effects of fault damage zones (DZs) in a reservoir-simulation model. Permeability anisotropy associated with fault DZs depends on many factors, including the geometry of the faults in the reservoir and the associated dimension and density of fractures in the DZs. To model permeability anisotropy caused… (More)
