Advanced Pressure Transient Analysis

This presentation examines in detail the mathematical basis for well test interpretation, starting with the concept of an ideal reservoir model and the partial differential equations used to describe single-phase and multi-phase flow in porous media. It discusses the use of dimensionless variables and type curves in pressure transient analysis, and describes interpretation methods for anisotropic, hetereogenous and multi-phase reservoirs. It also provides an overview of computer applications in pressure transient analysis, discusses specialized well testing procedures and their applications, and describes mathematical tools used in pressure transient analysis, including Transformations, applications of the Superposition Principle, Convolution/Deconvolution Methods, and Pressure Derivative Analysis.
