The compliance of macrofractures

Abstract:

Seismic anisotropy in reservoir rocks can result from the alignment of fractures of any size from grain scale to lengths of meters or tens of meters, provided the seismic wavelength is long relative to the size and spatial distribution of the fractures. It can also be caused by correlated pore space, alignment of minerals or grains, or any combination of the above. It is of huge practical importance to determine the primary cause of observed seismic anisotropy since the presence or otherwise ...
