Client Testimonials

Excellent instructor! Very clear and open in discussions. He also provided very useful tools to perform some analysis
The instructor was really an expert and knew how to make the explanation interesting during the whole week of the course
As a starter reservoir engineer, this course gave me excellent insight about the importance of well tests and its relevance in the elaboration of the development plan

Course Progression Map - Formation Testing

Well Test Design and Analysis

4.5 Average client rating (based on 55 attendee reviews)

This course will focus on the different types of tests and techniques, both analytical and graphical, for data representation and analysis of well tests. Types of techniques covered will include diagnostic plots-derivative for draw down, and buildup tests.  Participants will learn about the interpretation of complex data, such as those from well test in naturally fractured reservoirs, hydraulically fractured wells, horizontal wells, along with gas and gas condensate reservoirs.  Each day participants will see examples of the types and techniques discussed along with practice problems.

    Day 1

    Types of Test Analysis 

    • Steady state, semi-steady state, and transient well performance
    • Basic concepts for test analysis
    • Drawdown and buildup testing
    • Semilog analysis and estimating average reservoir pressure

    On day one of this course participants will learn about the need for testing and the states of well performance.  The basic concepts for test analysis will also be discussed on this day.  Some concepts that will be covered include modeling radial flow and characterizing damage and stimulation.  Several types of testing will also be discussed, including drawdown testing and buildup testing.  This day will also include a discussion on semilog analysis and estimating average reservoir pressure.

    Day 2

    Diagnostic and Derivative Analysis 

    • Diagnostic and derivative analysis
    • Wellbore storage and type curve matching
    • Sealing faults and stratigraphic pinchouts
    • Late time boundary and depletion effects

    Participants will learn about diagnostic and derivative plots analysis on this day.  A discussion of wellbore storage and type curve matching will also be included.  Participants will be introduced to recognizing sealing faults and stratigraphic pinchouts, along with late time boundary and depletion effects on well tests plots.

    Day 3

    Types of Well Testing

    • Interpretation of well test data
    • Analysis of post-fracture tests
    • Variable rate analysis methods
    • Horizontal well testing
    • Multi-well testing

    This day will focus on teaching participants about the interpretation methodology of various types of well testing. The types include post-fracture tests, variable rate analysis, horizontal well testing, and multi-well testing. Participants will also learn about the interpretation of well test data in naturally fractured reservoirs.

    Day 4

    Analysis Gas and Gas Condensate Reservoirs 

    • Modifications for gas wells and multiphase flow
    • Well test analysis in gas and gas condensate reservoirs
    • Pseudo-pressure and type curve analysis techniques
    • Phase redistribution

    On day four of this course, participants will learn about well test analysis in gas and gas condensate reservoirs.  They will learn about modifications for gas wells and multiphase flow.  Participants will learn about pseudo-pressure and type curve analysis techniques, along with phase redistribution.

    Day 5


    • DST key features
    • DST design and analysis
    • Interference tests
    • Reservoir limit tests
    • Well test design and step-by-step procedure

    The last day of the course will include a discussion on DST, its key features, design, and analysis.  Participants will learn about interference test and reservoir limit tests.  The class will end with a discussion on well test design and each participant will learn the step-by-step procedure.

  • Audience

    Reservoir engineers, production engineers, and any field personnel involved with the design and interpretation of well tests.

    Kuala Lumpur

    Kuala Lumpur is the capital and largest city of Malaysia.

    Beginning in the 1990s, the city has played host to many international sporting, political and cultural events including the 1998 Commonwealth Games and the Formula One World Championship. In addition, Kuala Lumpur is home to the tallest twin buildings in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers.

    Protected by the Titiwangsa Mountains in the east and Indonesia's Sumatra Island in the west, Kuala Lumpur has a tropical rainforest climate which is warm and sunny, along with abundant rainfall, especially during the northeast monsoon season from October to March.

    The major tourist destinations in Kuala Lumpur include the Dataran Merdeka (the Independence Square), the House of Parliament, the Istana Budaya, the Istana Negara (National Palace), the Kuala Lumpur Tower, the Muzium Negara (National Museum), the Putra World Trade Centre, the Tugu Negara (National Monument) and mosques such as the Masjid Jamek, the Masjid Negara (National Mosque) and the Federal Territory Mosque.

    Other tourist attractions include the Aquaria KLCC, the Batu Caves, the Makam Pahlawan (National Mausoleum), the National Science Centre, Petaling Street, the Royal Selangor Pewter Visitor Centre, the Zoo Negara (National Zoo), and events such as Malay cultural centres, the Chinese cultural festivals at the Thean Hou Temple and the Thaipusam procession at the Sri Mahamariamman Temple. The Golden Triangle, the commercial hub of the city, contains the Petronas Twin Towers and has a distinctive nightlife. Trendy nightclubs, bars and lounges, such as the Beach Club, Espanda, the Hakka Republic Wine Bar & Restaurant, Hard Rock Cafe, the Luna Bar, Nuovo, Rum Jungle, the Thai Club, Zouk, and many others are located within and around Jalan P. Ramlee, Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Ampang.

    Hotels, from five-star to budget types, have cropped up everywhere to accommodate the influx of tourists each year. There are many hotels near Kuala Lumpur's entertainment and business districts.

    Kuala Lumpur alone has 66 shopping malls and it is the retail and fashion hub for Malaysia. Suria KLCC is one of Malaysia's premier shopping destinations due to its location beneath the Petronas Twin Towers.

    Kuala Lumpur Sky Line

    The Perdana Lake Gardens near the Malaysian Parliament building includes a Butterfly Park, Deer Park, Orchid Garden, Hibiscus Garden and Kuala Lumpur Bird Park, Southeast Asia's largest bird park.

    There are three forest reserves within the city namely the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve in the city centre, the oldest gazetted forest reserve in the country, Bukit Sungai Putih Forest Reserve and Bukit Sungai Besi Forest Reserve. Bukit Nanas, in the heart of the city centre, is one of the oldest virgin forests in the world within a city. These residual forest areas are home to a number of fauna species particularly monkeys, tree shrews, squirrels and birds.

    Kuala Lumpur is a hub for cultural activities and events in Malaysia. Among the centres is the National Museum which is situated along the Mahameru Highway. Its collection comprises artifacts and paintings collected throughout the country. Kuala Lumpur also has an Islamic Arts Museum which houses more than seven thousand Islamic artefacts including rare exhibits as well as a library of Islamic art books. However, the museum's collection not only concentrate on works from the Middle East, the museum also puts the emphasis on Asia, with China and Southeast Asia especially well represented. This museum features some impressively decorated domes and large open exhibition spaces. It is located at Jalan Lembah Perdana next to the National Mosque.

    Kuala Lumpur is one of the host cities for the Formula One World Championship, the open-wheel auto racing A1 Grand Prix and the Motorcycle Grand Prix with races being held at Sepang International Circuit in the neighbouring state of Selangor, next to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
