Fractured fluid reservoirs are of key importance if recovering water and hydrocarbon supplies, geothermal energy, or in predicting the flow of pollutants underground. Fractured basement rock bodies are essential from many aspects also in Hungary:
A reliable examination of a fractured reservoir should include a complex evaluation of data concerning geophysics, petrology, structural evolution, fracture network geometry, fracture cementation processes as well as recent hydrogeology. That is why in the Fractured Reservoir Group (FRG) of the University of Szeged colleagues and students from many fields of geology work together. The main aim of our research group is to contribute to better understanding geological constraints of diverse “fractured fluid reservoirs” both from theoretical and applied geological points of view.
