Framework of Fracture Network Modeling using Conditioned Data with Sequential Gaussian Simulation

by   Yerlan Amanbek, et al.

The fracture characterization using a geostatistical tool with conditioning data is a computationally efficient tool for subsurface flow and transport applications. The main objective of the paper is to propose a framework of geostatistical method to model the fracture network. In the method, we have chosen neighborhood area to apply the Gaussian Sequential Simulation in order to generate the fracture network in the unknown region. The angle was propagated from the seed where direction is guided by the neighborhood data in simulation regime. Initial seeds can be distributed by Poisson procedure. The method is applied for geological faults from the Central Kazakhstan and for field data from Scotland, UK. The simulation results are compatible with the original fracture network in the flow and transport modeling setting. From the research that has been carried out, it is possible to conclude that the numerical simulation of fracture network is a valuable tool in the subsurface flow and transport applications.
