.... With the popularity of non-conductive drilling fluid (OBM) and improvement of electrical image logging technology, it is possible nowadays to acquire similar high resolution electrical images in OBM environment. Vugs can be identified visually on these new types of electrical images. However open vugs filled with OBM...

Paper Number: SPE-130287-MS
... Abstract Modeling and numerical simulations of fractured vuggy porous media is a challenging problem due to the presence of cavities called macro vugs which are connected via discrete fractures networks. The main difficulty is the co-existence of porous and free-flow region in such media...

... Abstract Many of the world's oil fields and aquifers are found in carbonate strata. Some of these formations contain vugs or cavities several centimeters in size. Flow of fluids through such rocks depends strongly upon the spatial distribution and connectivity of the vugs. Enhanced oil...

... with anhydrite cement and features a wide variety of textures. In some intervals the depositional textures are preserved, in others they are highly altered by diagenesis. Vugs are developed in several intervals. Computation of permeability from porosity alone yields scatter of a factor of 700. Rock typing using...

Paper Number: SPE-96027-MS
... Abstract In some vuggy carbonate rocks, the sizes of the vugs are much larger than that of the matrix pores and different physical models are required for different parts of the pore space. This is particularly true when the vugs are touching, forming a network of directly connected vugs...

Paper Number: SPE-74341-MS
... Abstract Three porosity types, matrix, vugs and fractures, are usually present in naturally fractured, vuggy carbonate reservoirs. The vugs are generally considered connected either to the matrix or to the fractures in numerical simulation. One of the challenges of modeling these reservoirs...

... models do not consider vugs or fractures. There is a significant gap in the literature for models that design and evaluate matrix-acid stimulation in vuggy and naturally fractured carbonate reservoirs. The objective of this work is to develop a new model to simulate matrix acidizing under field...
