Type-Curve Analysis Using the Pressure Integral Method Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper presents new type curves and type curve plotting functions which use integration rather than differentiation of well test data. These functions provide more unique type curve matches for noisy data because the integral of these data yields a much smoother function. The type curves presented were generated from analytical solutions and are applied in exactly the same manner as in conventional type curve analysis.
