This month, Janpieter will give two invited lectures on the Analyses and Modelling of Faulted and Fractured Reservoirs at the University of Calabria (Cosenza, Italy).

Below are some of the items that will be covered:

Session I: Multiscale, Multiparameter and Multisource Acquisition and Analyses of Fracture and Fault data sets

Outcrop, Core. Log, Seismics and Remote Sensing Data

Acquisition Techniques and Instruments (scan lines and areas, stereo-photogrammetry, drones, UAV)

  • Data Types, Parameters on Fractures and Faults
  • Fractures, Joints, HPF, Damage Zones
  • Stress and Strain – Dynamics and Kinematics
  • Geological Relationships – Genetic Models; Jointing, Faulting, Folding
  • Multiscale Multiparameter Analyses Techniques
  • Computational Environments; SIE, CAD and GIS
  • Data Storage – Big and Small Data

Session II: 3d Geological Modelling of Fractured and Faulted Reservoirs

    • The challenge: Computational Concepts and Algorithms
    • 3d Structural Geological Models
    • The Evolution of Software Solutions
    • Many abbreviations: SEM, DFN, DFFN, FEM, DEM, TIN, PEBI, FMX, DMX Concepts
    • Probabilistics, Stochastics, Geostatistics, Fractals
    • Deterministic Geological Drivers
    • Data Driven Modelling
    • Neural Networks, Machine Learning and AI
    • Well Positioning Applications
