Connectivity between fractures and pores in hydrocarbon-rich mudrocks Fact Sheet

The objective of this project is to determine the degree to which fracture systems induced prior to production form a network of connected flow pathways that access the surrounding matrix porosity. Both laboratory experiments and numerical simulation will be employed to understand fracture system development and characterization. This will require defining the rock properties and stress conditions necessary for these fracture systems to develop, and characterizing the size and distribution of fracture systems that do develop, as well as characterizing the unfractured matrix microstructure around factures. The overall goal is to develop targeted methods for determining where the best production results within a mudrock reservoir may be expected and methods for exploiting favorable rock properties to enhance production rates and recovery.
