Fracturing model is required for reasonable development planning of fractured reservoirs. Discrete fracture networks (DFN) are generally used for these purposes. Input data relative to parameters of fracture systems at the interwell space particularly fracture density and direction are necessary for correct construction of DFN. This work is dedicated to comparison of real fracture density and direction which were measured on outcropping with numerical simulation results and geomechanical parameters calculation relative to deformation and stresses. This comparison allows connection of geomechanical parameters with fracturing parameters and drawing of conclusion that geomechanical analysis is appropriate for fracturing prediction.
