The analysis of pressure changes over time, especially those associated with small variations in the volume of fluid. It involves allowing a limited amount of fluid to flow from the formation while monitoring the pressure over time. The well is then shut-in and the pressure monitored while the fluid in the reservoir stabilizes. Analysis of these pressure changes provides information on the size and shape of the formation as well as its producibility.

The log-log analysis is a global approach as opposed to straight-line methods that use only one fraction of the data, corresponding to a specific flow regime. Stallman (1952) published log-log type curves for both the no-flow and the constant pressure linear boundaries. His curves are applicable for the analysis of single well tests and also for interference tests. These curves may be used to find the distance of the linear boundary and its orientation.

Davis and Larkin (19631, Standing (1964), Witherspoon, et al. (1967) and Kruseman and De Ridder (1970) extended the log-log method for a single linear boundary. They introduced the semilog method for determining the distance to a linear boundary. Loucks and Guerrero (1961) and Bixel and van Poolen (1967) presented type curves for a well centered in a two region radial flow system. Ramey (1970) presented approximate solutions for unsteady liquid flow for a well centered in a radially concentric composite system. The present work concentrates on internal circular boundaries, yet, the same mathematical methods apply also to linear boundary configurations.

LOG-LOG SCALE

For a given period of the test, the change in pressure is plotted on log-log scales versus the elapsed time. A test period is defined as a period of constant flowing conditions (constant flow rate for a drawdown and shut-in period for a build-up test). By comparing the log-log data plot to a set of theoretical curves, the model that best describes the pressure response is defined. Theoretical curves are expressed in dimensionless terms because the pressure responses become independent of the physical parameters magnitude (such as flow rate, fluid or rock properties).

On log-log scales, the shape of the response curve is characteristic. The shape of the global log-log data plot is used for the diagnosis of the interpretation model(s). The dimensionless pressure pD and time tD are linear functions of Ap and At, the coefficients A and B being dependent upon different parameters such as the permeability k.

log pD =log A + log Ap log tD =log B + log At

Linear flow

Linear flow occurs in some reservoirs with long, highly conductive vertical fractures. Straight line given with p vs t with slope of 1/2

loglog graph of p vs t yields a straight line with slope

Bilinear flow

It is a new type of flow behavior called bilinear flow because two linear flows occur simultaneously.

Can be identified from a loglog plot of p versus t which will exhibit a straight line with a slope

Productivity Index, PI This is a measure of the ability of a well to produce. It is defined by the symbol J, and is the ratio of the total liquid flow rate to the pressure drawdown.

Specialized plots

These plots were focused on using a specific flow regime (IARF), to determine well productivity and the main reservoir properties: Effective permeability (keff) Skin factor (S) Conductivity (kh) Pressure drop due to skin (ps) Drainage area/OOIP Time for well bore storage effects to cease, or IARF to start. Wellbore storage coefficient.

(tp + delt)/delt

Developed to compliment straight line techniques. A log-log plot of the pressure response vs. time on tracing paper is placed over a set of predefined curves. Results obtained from the specialized plots is used to help position data on the type curves. The choice and relative position of the data on the type curve, called the match point, were used to calculate physical results. This method was of poor resolution until Bourdet derivative was introduced.

Bourdet Derivative

Was introduced to address the many shortcomings of the type curve matching technique, and was at the origin of what is called modern PTA methodology. It is defined as the slope of the superposition semi-log plot displayed on the log-log plot. Considered the single most important breakthrough in the history of PTA.

Bourdet Derivative

Category I

Relies heavily on graphics. User inputs well test data into the computer after which the computer graphically displays the data, derivative of the data, and derivative type curve on the screen. The user can then move the WT data on the screen until a match is achieved bet. the data and the type curve. The user then enters the match; as well as required reservoir and production characteristics. The program will then calculate and output k, S & C.

Category II

Relies on numerical techniques to achieve a fit. The type curve is num. rep. in the program. The user enters the WT data, and reservoir and production parameters. The WT data is then smoothed using num methods and the derivative curve calculated. The program compares the type curve to the WT data and its derivative. When a match is achieved, the program outputs the reservoir parameters.

Pure wellbore storage effects are only observed at early time when the well pressure behaviour is dominated by well fluid decompression. For pure wellbore storage: p Ct

dCt p' t Ct p dt

This implies that at early time, when wellbore storage is present, pressure and the Bourdet derivative curves will merge on a unit slope line on the log-log plot.

When IARF occurs: p=msup(t), where m is the slope of the semilog str. line.

Derivative is:

After long stabilized production, PSS is reached, and the pressure response is: p=At+B. The superposition time can again be approximated by sup(t)ln(t). The derivative is:

d ( At B) p' t At dt

At very large time, p = At + B At. So, when PSS is reached, the pressure response on the log-log plot will tend to a unit slope, while the derivative will reach the unit slope much earlier. In a BU the pressure stabilizes and the derivative plunges towards zero.
