Well test design and interpretation

 

 

Overview

This course stresses practical application of well test theory to design and interpret pressure transient tests. Class exercises using adequate software will reinforce the concepts illustrated by both synthetic data sets and real field examples. Participants will be able to apply the knowledge and skills in their job assignments upon course completion.

 

  Designed for

 

Students, reservoir engineers, geologists, geophysicists, development project engineers and managers.
