Modeling hydraulic fractures in finite difference simulators using amalgam local grid refinement (LGR)

Fig. 2 Overview of the static model

Most of the current analytical techniques assume a single rectangular shaped fracture in a single-phase homogeneous reservoir, the fracture is limited to the block size and the fracture properties are adjusted using permeability multiplier. The current work demonstrates how to model these systems with a smaller grid block size which
