Abstract

The paper presents an approach to reconstruct dominant fracture orientation of the reservoir via azimuth variability of surface scattering seismic energy. The approach is validated for both synthetic and real field data. The approach can be applied for to optimize location of horizontal wells in order to ensure crossing the greatest number of fluid saturated fractures and, hence, maximize the influx.
