Outcrop fracture data sets can now be acquired with ever more accuracy using drone technology augmented by field observations. These models can be used to form realistic, deterministic models of fractured reservoirs. Fractured well test models are traditionally seen to be finite or infinite conductivity or double porosity - corresponding the fractures with or without matrix support. Using this simple field outcrop based geometrical model to generate typical well test responses for wells either intersecting fractures or well nearby fractures shows that such responses can occur in sequence as part as a diagnostic signature of naturally fractured reservoirs.
