TYPE CURVE AND DECLINE CURVE ANALYSIS USING COMPOSITE MODELS. Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • This paper presents applications of new type curves generated using a composite model to the analysis of radially damaged, stimulated and fractured wells. We introduce the radial conductivity and conformal mapping concepts to the composite model which facilitates the application of our new type curves to finite and infinite conductivity hydraulic fractures. These type curves can be used to estimate the depth and degree of damage in a damaged well, or the extent and quality of stimulation from an acid treatment. The production type curves can be used to forecast incremental production from stimulation of damaged wells.
