This study discusses a new workflow for fracture characterization and modeling using geophysical (microseismic and 3D surface seismic) data along with independent reservoir information (such as well logs). The framework is ideally suited for unconventional environments such as shale and tight reservoirs where modern technologies such as the use of hydraulic fracturing and passive seismic monitoring allow application of the proposed workflow. The workflow involves generating geomechanical… CONTINUE READING
