Chapter 13. Well Test Analysis: Hydraulically Fractured Wells and Naturally Fractured Reservoirs

13.1 Introduction

This chapter presents basic concepts on well test analysis of hydraulically fractured wells and naturally fractured reservoirs. Hydraulically fractured wells and naturally fractured reservoirs form a large part of hydrocarbon production capacity around the world. The well test analysis methods presented for these wells and reservoir types emphasize applications of combined straightline and type-curve matching techniques as previously recommended for unfractured wells and reservoirs. In this chapter, well test analysis for hydraulically fractured wells is presented first followed by well test analysis for naturally fractured reservoirs. ...
