Abstract

A good understanding of the fracture distribution and of the main mechanisms controlling fault and fracture impedance across different lithologies is key to estimating both flow properties and recovery of geofluids in fractured reservoirs. This multidisciplinary study of the Cretaceous carbonate platform of the Maiella Mountains focused on the occurrence and impedance of two main mechanical boundaries for large-scale fractured zones. Additionally, a workflow for applying the outcrop findings to the subsurface was developed.
