This paper discusses the interaction between hydraulic fracturing and the pre-existing dis‐
crete fracture network (DFN) in a rock mass subject to in–situ stresses. Two–dimensional
computational model studies have been used in an initial attempt towards understanding how reservoir response to fluid injection is affected by some of the DFN characteristics and to operational variables such as injection rate.
