Release Notes
This utility provides a guided workflow for detailed grid representation of hydraulic fractures. A local grid refinement (LGR) is automatically generated at each specified fracture plane. The user can interactively set the fracture location, shape, size and orientation. The utility also updates the simulation case of interest with relevant fracture parameters and well connections.
  • Blackoil and compositional fluids are supported
  • Grids generated using vertical pillars are recommended
  • All fractures planes are vertical
  • Fracture planes may be perpendicular to the wellbore, or may be assigned an azimuthal angle
  • Fracture geometry (length left and right, height up and down, width) are fully controlled by the user.
Gridding Workflow: Interactively combine perforations into stages Define the fracture plane geometry and orientation Control the fracture plane position Define the fracture plane properties Generate local grid refinements automatically Simulation Workflow: Dynamically update the simulation deck to account for the presence of fracture planes Run realistic flow simulation
