Fracture permeability

Production from natural fracture networks is critical to maximising production in many play types throughout the world.  The location and density of natural fractures and their orientation within the in situ stress field are key controls on production.

Ikon Science specialises in the processing and interpretation of image log data for the distribution of natural fractures, as well as expertise in generating geomechanical models for predicting optimal fracture geometries for maximum production.  This information is essential for well placement and orientation as well as completion strategy to maximise the production from natural fractures.
