Formation Evaluation by Tomisin Olapo Page 3
1.2 AIMS AND OBJECTIVES:
To give an overview on the working principles of Drill Stem Tests and its application to drilling,well testing and reservoir optimization.
1.3 WHY DRILL STEM TESTS?
Drill Stem Tests is used primarily to determine the fluids present in a particularformation and the rate at which they are produced.
A temporary well completion to gather information on the potential productivity of aformation
Despite the tremendous value of core analysis and well logging some doubt alwaysremains concerning the potential productivity of an exploratory well
WE NEED TO KNOW:
if there is a reservoir?
what does it contain?
at what rate will it produce?
for how long?
what facilities will be required and when?
what hazards are there?
