This publication solves the open difficulties in fluid stream modeling in the course of the fractured vuggy carbonate reservoirs. Fractured vuggy carbonate reservoirs frequently have advanced pore buildings, which include not just matrix and fractures but additionally the vugs and cavities. because the vugs and cavities are abnormal suit and range in diameter from millimeters to meters, modeling fluid stream via fractured vuggy porous media remains to be a problem. the prevailing modeling conception and techniques aren't compatible for such reservoir. It begins from the concept that of discrete fracture and fracture-vug networks version, after which develops the corresponding mathematical types and numerical tools, together with discrete fracture version, discrete fracture-vug version, hybrid version and multiscale types. in line with those discrete porous media types, a few an identical medium models and equipment also are mentioned. all of the modeling and techniques shared during this booklet supply the major fresh ideas into this area.
