The modeling of fluid flow in heterogeneous, anisotropic and fractured porous media is relevant in many applications, including hydrocarbon and groundwater extraction, dispersion of contaminants, hydrogen or carbon dioxide (CO<sub>2</sub>) storage. Thus, accurate and scalable simulation of fluid flow through these formations continues to be a...

Naturally fractured reservoirs (NFRs) gain much attention worldwide because they are often encountered in aquifer remediation, CO2 sequestration, and hydrocarbon extraction. In hydrocarbon extraction, however, oil recovery by gas injection in NFRs is usually low, because of poor sweep efficiency. During gas injection, the displacement front is...

Natural fractures in subsurface rocks are a source of heterogeneity that impacts flow and transport behaviour. The presence of fracture discontinuities needs to be modelled explicitly due to observed deviations from the continuum assumption of porous media. The departures are due to both individual properties (such as aperture, infill, and...

Fracture network connectivity and aperture (or conductivity) distribution are two crucial features controlling flow behavior of naturally fractured reservoirs. The effect of connectivity on flow properties is well documented. In this paper, however, we focus here on the influence of fracture aperture distribution. We model a two-dimensional...

The main challenge of naturally fractured reservoirs (NFRs) is understanding how fractures behave in the subsurface outside the radius of influence of wells. Fractured outcrop analogues provide geological concepts that can be used to extrapolate fracture data outside the well control. Numerous methods for studying fractured outcrops are...
