Extension of Poroelastic Analysis to Double-Porosity Materials: New Technique in Microgeomechanics


Double-porosity materials were introduced as models for oil and gas reservoirs having both storage and transport porosities, and were at first usually treated as static mechanical systems in order to study the flow patterns of fluids during reservoir pump down. Because fluid withdrawal normally increases the effective stress acting on the reservoir, it also… (More)
