Numerical and analytical well test analysis: a case history Conference Paper uri icon


  • A case history of integrating numerical and analytical well test analysis is presented. This field case focuses on the analysis of a hydraulically fractured, low permeability, complex, multilayer gas reservoir. A variety of different analysis techniques were applied in order to evaluate the consistency between reservoir and fracture properties estimated by the different methods of analysis. In this field case, analysis begins with simple models and proceeds through more complex models as necessary to match the reservoir behavior in the desired detail.
