Advancements in Well Forecasting and Well Test Analysis

Monday, 16 October
Room 217 B
Technical Session
Advances in transient analysis continues to furnish and expand insights into the flow characteristics of both conventional and unconventional reservoirs. This technical session addresses the use of pressure- and rate-transient analyses for assessing and forecasting well/reservoir performance. Considerations include applications of existing and new techniques to modeling fractured horizontal wells, analyzing production from multi-branch wells, diagnosing flow regimes in geopressured shale reservoirs, predicting well performance for near-critical fluids, and characterizing dynamic fracture closure and formation damage in multiphase flow systems.
