Advancements in Well Forecasting and Well Test Analysis

Tuesday, 4 October
371 D-F
Technical Session
Transient analysis plays a central role in understanding and predicting well/reservoir performance. This technical session focuses on the use of PTA and RTA techniques to characterize complex systems, including fractured reservoirs, multi-layered reservoirs, and multi-fractured horizontal wells. It also discusses application of the techniques to assist numerical history matching, evaluate well spacing and reserves estimation, improve well management, and assess the impact of non-reservoir signals on well-test interpretation
