Title
(EN) GEOSTATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF MICROSEISMIC DATA IN FRACTURE MODELING
(FR) ANALYSE GÉOSTATISTIQUE DE DONNÉES MICROSISMIQUES DANS UNE MODÉLISATION DE FRACTURE
Abstract
(EN) A method may comprise: modeling a complex fracture network within the subterranean formation with a mathematical model based on a natural fracture network map and measured data of the subterranean formation collected in association with a fracturing treatment of the subterranean formation to produce a complex fracture network map; importing microseismic data collected in association with the fracturing treatment of the subterranean formation into the mathematical model; identifying directions of continuity in the microseismic data via a geostatistical analysis that is part of the mathematical model; and correlating the directions of continuity in the microseismic data to the complex fracture network with the mathematical model to produce a microseismic-weighted (MSW) complex fracture network map.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé qui peut consister : à modéliser un réseau de fractures complexes à l'intérieur de la formation souterraine à l'aide d'un modèle mathématique sur la base d'une carte de réseau de fractures naturelles et de données mesurées de la formation souterraine collectées en association avec un traitement de fracturation de la formation souterraine pour produire une carte de réseau de fractures complexes ; à importer des données microsismiques collectées en association avec le traitement de fracturation de la formation souterraine dans le modèle mathématique ; à trouver des directions de continuité dans les données microsismiques par l'intermédiaire d'une analyse géostatistique qui fait partie du modèle mathématique ; et à corréler les directions de continuité dans les données microsismiques au réseau de fractures complexes à l'aide du modèle mathématique pour produire une carte de réseau de fractures complexes à pondération microsismique (MSW).
