Well Test Interpretation Methodology
- Well Testing as a signal analysis problem
- Concept of interpretation model
- Straight-Line and pressure log-log analyses
On the first day, attendees will be introduced to the main concepts of well test analysis. Two historic approaches for interpreting well test data will be covered. Topics covered will include the concept of the interpretation model and straight-line and pressure log-log analyses.
Well Test Interpretation Methods
- Derivative analysis
- The use of simulators in well test analysis
Day two will build on what was learned the day before. Participants will continue to learn about the interpretation techniques. Examples of wells with wellbore storage and skin effect in an infinite reservoir with homogeneous behavior will be presented.
Well Test Interpretation Models
- Hydraulically fractured wells
- Partial penetration, horizontal wells, and composite behavior
- Double porosity behavior
Day three will cover hydraulically fractured wells, partial penetration, horizontal wells, and composite behavior. A presentation of near-wellbore and reservoir interpretation models with examples will be covered. Double porosity behavior will also be discussed.
Well Test Interpretation Models (Cont.)
- Double permeability behavior
- Simple boundaries
- Complex boundaries
The focus of day four will be the continuation of the presentation of interpretation models with examples. Specific models that will be covered include double permeability behavior, as well as simple and complex boundaries.
Additional Well Test Analysis Topics
- Gas and multiphase flow
- Test design
- Practical well test analysis considerations
On the last day participants will learn about how the methods described for oil in the previous four days can be extended to gas and multiphase flow. Participants will also learn about test design and practical well test analysis considerations. Everything that has been taught during the course will be summarized into a set of practical rules.
Reservoir engineers, production engineers, and field personnel involved in the design and interpretation of well tests.
Participants should have knowledge of transient well testing nomenclature.
