“Advances in the Study of Fractured Reservoirs” Edited by G. H. Spence, J. Redfern, R. Aguilera, T. G. Bevan, J.W. Cosgrove, and G. D. Couples, Geological Society, London, Special Publication 374 (2014).

This book addresses Naturally Fractured Reservoirs and some of the challenges and in knowledge, approaches, concepts, and methods used to characterize the interplay of rock matrix and fracture networks, relevant to fluid flow and hydrocarbon recovery. Topics include: describing, characterizing and identifying controls on fracture networks from outcrops, cores, geophysical data, digital and numerical models;  geomechanical influences on reservoir behavior; numerical modelling and simulation of fluid flow; and case studies of the exploration and development of carbonate, siliciclastic and metamorphic naturally fractured reservoirs.
