The understanding of the flow network organization, and the ability to predict in 3D the distribution of fracture drains are hey points to enhancing well productivity, hydrocarbon recovery and therefore field productivity.

Recent advances in fractured reservoir characterization and modeling have led to construct and very sophisticated software able to model local 3D fractured networks and run one phase flow simulations on explicit fracture models.

The problem is how to take advantage of these advances and build more realistic 3D full field models to run multiple phase flow simulations.

This paper proposes and integrated approach assigning reservoir of flow properties using results from pluriscale and multi-disciplinary steps.

Its application on a case study largely contributed to a better understanding of flow behavior within reservoir.
