We consider the problem of uncertainty quantification analysis of the output of underground flow simulations. We consider in particular fractured media described via the discrete fracture network model; within this framework, we address the relevant case of networks in which the geometry of the fractures is described by stochastic parameters. In this context, due to a possible lack of smoothness in the quantity of interest with respect to the stochastic parameters, well assessed techniques such as stochastic collocation may fail in providing reliable estimates of first-order moments of the quantity of interest. In this paper, we overcome this issue by applying the Multilevel Monte Carlo method, using as underlying solver an extremely robust method.
