The success in establishing flow between wells at Fenton Hill is due in part to the development of crude acoustic measurement techniques which enabled targeting of a hydraulically fractured rock volume for the final directional drilling of the production well. (435y6) review subsequent efforts to detect pressurized hydraulic fractures in the Fenton Hill reservoir that are based on the acquisition of data using commercially available acoustic logging tools and signal processing techniques developed at LASL. Only the dual well measurements made with these tools will be discussed. In the application of these methods at Fenton Hill, results of the earlier work have been substantiated and more detailed information regarding fractures in the reservoir has been obtained.
