Title: THREE-DIMENSIONAL FRACTURE ABUNDANCE EVALUATION OF SUBSURFACE FORMATION BASED ON GEOMECHANICAL SIMULATION OF MECHANICAL PROPERTIES THEREOF
Abstract:
A method, apparatus, and program product evaluate fracture abundance in a subsurface formation by modeling a fracture network in a three-dimensional volume using geometric primitives and based at least in part on geomechanical simulation of mechanical properties of the subsurface formation.
