An integrated methodology is proposed to generate a grid of potential paths for hydraulic fracture growth in naturally fractured reservoirs based on formation properties and recorded microseismic maps. The generated grid can be further used for treatment simulation to determine induced fractures geometry, height growth and respected proppant transport in the induced fracture network. For different realization of natural fracture distributions generated by computer simulations, cohesive interface technique is used to model evolution of induced fracture network. Microsesimic map is used to
