The history of fractured reservoirs is probably as long as the history of petroleum itself. During the Los Angeles Panel Discussion on Fractured Reservoirs (March 1952) Levorsen mentioned that the notion “fractured porosity” was introduced only two years after Drake’s discovery in 186 l by the geologist E.B. Andrews who wrote that if fractures are numerous along the anticline axis it represents the primary cause of an accumulation, and also that a law of proportionality was observed between the oil produced and the amount of fissures. But it was only in the early nineteen fifties, with the important discoveries in the Spraberry trend of West Texas and giant fields in the Middle East that an increasing interest for this type of fields started. In continuation in the late fifties, but especially in the last two decades, various concepts have been developed in various areas such as geology, reservoir description, flow toward the well, reservoir mechanisms, etc. But the studies and papers published in the literature presented single problems in a limited area and unrelated to a global concept of fractured reservoirs. Therefore, in order to integrate the existent published material and my personal views on natural fractured reservoirs, I have tried to write a self-contained book where the reader can find the necessary tools for the evaluation of fractures by processing the observed data, examining the flow behaviour towards a well and analysing reservoir behaviour during a field’s entire history, through its specific production mechanisms.

Enjoy this great book!
