Major faults are surrounded by damage zones of minor faults that, in siliclastic rocks, can form barriers to flow in their own right. Reservoir flow simulation — now a routine part of reservoir management — requires equivalent hydraulic parameters on the scale of the whole fault, while reservoir geological models, from which flow simulator grids are generated, require information on the 3D characteristics of fault populations. Here, a stochastic model of fault damage zone architecture is generated and used to explore the impact of damage zone architecture on extrapolation from 1D (fault throw) and 2D (fault length) to 3D...
