"We are encouraged by the Warwick Deep well, despite the penetrated fracture system not supporting a commercial oil flow rate," said Trice.
In the interior, along the Levant Fracture System, lacustrine and continental deposits marked the Neogene.
The viscosity of the two fracturing fluids is 120 mPa x s, and the fracture body model is selected as a multistage fracture system. The statistical results are shown in Table 4 and Figures 4 and 5.
Traditionally, dual-porosity models have been used to model naturally fractured reservoirs, which are composed of a porous matrix surrounded by a larger-scale fracture system. The dual-porosity models assume uniform matrix properties throughout the reservoir which may not capture the relevant physics accurately in shale reservoirs, because the shale matrix is comprised of predominantly clay minerals, quartz, pyrite, and organic matter.
The eastern branch of the East African Rift fracture system is still known as the Gregory Rift.
"Tharsis is the largest volcanic province on Mars, its far-reaching fracture system testament to the powerful influence this impressive volcanic province had on the planet," the release added.
In this new model, the deep fracture system in a given basin's floor provided conduits for magma to well upward.
For studying the fracture system of the low permeability reservoir, the high permeability cores are 300 mD, 500 mD, and 1000 mD, respectively, for simulating the fracture systems.
