Natural fractures are common in the unconventional “Mississippian Limestone” play of the US Southern Mid-Continent region. Owing to their narrow width, vertical cores provide limited data on the distribution of fracture attributes (e.g., kinematic aperture, height, and spacing) in relation to fracture abundance. For the purpose of searching for an outcrop analog that provides an extensive view of lateral fracture distribution, this study uses an outcrop with Mississippian-aged strata in northwestern Arkansas. Targeting the Reeds Spring Formation, this study aims to characterize the type, attributes, and distribution of natural fractures and to test the outcrop’s suitability as a fracture analog...
