An integrated data acquisition and log interpretation method was used to achieve the fracture study of a very old cased hole abandoned well. Accordingly, by using continuous dipmeter logs and core samples; fracture dip, density, direction and fracture intervals were determined. Results were used along with seismic interpretation and drilling history as a tool to transform recently unused continuous dip meter logs from old drilled wells into valuable information that can highly help in formation fracture studies. It can also be used in combination to drilling rate of penetration, drilling cutting logs and mud losses to get a better insight into the fracture network in the reservoir formation.
