The objective of this paper are: (i) to summarize a recently developed coupled fluid-flow/geomechancs, dual-porosity model intended to describe the behavior of naturally fractured reservoirs, and (ii) to analyze and compare four other existing models. Conceptual consistency is examined for each model within the concept of dual-porosity. The comparison provides important understanding and interpretation to the complex model parameters.
