The consistent low porosity and permeability of reservoirs in the Bakken petroleum system, in the Williston Basin, have increased the need for fracture studies. Although situated in an intracratonic setting, the Williston Basin displays evidence of deformation enabling the presence of regional and local fracturing. In this study, applicable fracture models are utilized to delineate regional and local fracture orientations within the Williston Region. Northwest and northeast regional fracture trends have been determined by integrating results from previous fracture studies, collecting field data at outcrop locations in the Williston Basin Region, and from subsurface three-dimensional (3-D) seismic data in...
