Title (EN) FRACTURE MAPPING WITH AUTOMATED TEMPORAL ANALYSIS
(FR) CARTOGRAPHIE DE FRACTURE AVEC ANALYSE TEMPORELLE AUTOMATISÉE
Abstract:
(EN) An illustrative fracture mapping system includes: a data acquisition unit collecting measurements deformation measurements during a fluid injection phase of a hydraulic fracturing operation; and a processing system implementing a formation mapping method. The formation mapping method includes: obtaining an initial fracture map having a location and geometry for one or more fractures activated during the fluid injection phase, the fracture map corresponding to a given time during the hydraulic fracturing operation; deriving from the initial fracture map a time series of fracture maps for times preceding the given time; and storing the time series on a nonvolatile information storage medium. The deriving may be performed in an iterative fashion to obtain each fracture map in the time series from a subsequent fracture map.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système de cartographie de fracture illustrative qui comprend : une unité d’acquisition de données collectant des mesures de déformation pendant une phase d’injection de fluide d’une opération de fracturation hydraulique ; et un système de traitement mettant en œuvre un procédé de cartographie de formation. Le procédé de cartographie de formation comprend : l’obtention d’une carte de fracture initiale ayant un emplacement et une géométrie pour une ou plusieurs fractures activées pendant la phase d’injection de fluide, la carte de fracture correspondant à un temps donné pendant l’opération de fracturation hydraulique ; la dérivation à partir de la carte de fracture initiale d’une série temporelle de carte de fracture pour des temps précédant le temps donné ; et le stockage de la série temporelle sur un support de stockage d’information non volatile. La dérivation peut être effectuée de façon itérative pour obtenir chaque carte de fracture dans la série temporelle à partir d’une carte de fracture suivante.
