Figure 8. Emilio Field in the Adriatic, offshore Italy, shows the fast S-wave direction in color to illustrate the bimodal distribution associated with the target layer (naturally fractured Scaglia carbonates, upper Paleocene). Note the compartmentalization and apparent control by faulting (thin black lines). There is good agreement with the borehole data in wells at the top of the structure (white points), and based on production, borehole fracture studies and anisotropy from seismic data, the Emilio Field has characteristics of a Type II fractured reservoir.
