Understanding fluid flow in rough-walled fractures using x-ray microtomography images
Natural fractures provide fluid flow pathways in otherwise low permeability reservoirs. These fractures are usually lined or completely filled with mineral cements. The presence of these cements causes very rough fracture ...
Fracture sets, timing, and size distributions in the Cretaceous Frontier Formation, Greater Green River Basin, Wyoming
Fractures influence permeability but sampling subsurface fractures is difficult in vertical wells. Horizontal cores are special cases allowing fracture abundance, distribution, and aperture size populations to be measured. ...
