Fractured carbonate reservoirs are commonly extremely heterogeneous. This heterogeneity is caused by fracturing at
multi scales superimposed on inherent textures from deposition and diagenesis. In addition, there is an
interrelationship between diagenesis and fracture formation, e.g. the matrix properties may change due to reactions
with fluids provided by the fracture network or fractures are filled with calcite cement.
