Covers faulted and fractured reservoirs, particularly in relation to petroleum traps, fluid flow prediction and modelling structurally-heterogeneous reservoirs. The book aims to capture the wide range of rapidly expanding research in this area,which reflects the increasing importance of comprehensive 'structural characterisation' in static reservoir descriptions. The majority of papers address a range of structural geological features, particularly faulted and fractured reservoirs, fault gougeproperties, fault seal potential and fluid flow/simulation modelling in faulted and fractured reservoirs.

Introduction • The role of structural geology in reservoir characterization • Reservoir characterization and modelling: a framework for field development • Fault seal prediction: the gouge ratio method • Experimental fault sealing: shear band permeability dependency on cataclastic fault gouge characteristics • Identification and spatial distribution of fractures in porous, siliciclastic sediments • Flow through fault systems in high porosity sandstones • Physical character and fluid-flow properties of sandstone-derived fault zones • Assessment of the effects of sub-seismic faults on bulk permeabilities of reservoir sequences • Reservoir characterization: how can anisotropy help? • Numerical simulation of fluid flow in complex faulted regions • Curvature analysis of gridded surfaces • Strain partitioning during flexural slip folding • Fracture distribution in faulted basement blocks: Gulf of Suez, Egypt • Polygonal faulting in the Tertiary of the Central North Sea: implications for reservoir geology • Fault and fracture characteristics of a major fault zone in the northern North Sea: analysis of 3D seismic and oriented cores in the Brage Field (Block 31/4) • Structural geology of the Gullfaks Field, northern North Sea
