This volume reviews our current understanding and ability to model the complex distribution and behaviour of fault and fracture networks, highlighting their fluid compartmentalizing effects and storage-transmissivity characteristics, and outlining approaches for predicting the dynamic fluid flow and geomechanical behaviour of these reservoirs. This collection of 25 papers provides an overview of recent progress and outstanding issues in the areas of structural complexity and fault geometry, detection and prediction of faults and fractures, compartmentalizing effects of fault systems and complex siliciclastic reservoirs and critical controls affecting fractured reservoirs.We have developed a new approach to fault network modelling, using a new concept of aquot;fuseda#39; fault blocks. ... The resultant fault model can then be used to create a 3D reservoir grid, one in which the fault geometry has not been ... network building on the evaluation of the interpretation and the effects of compartmentalization, and not on the manipulation of software. ...
