GEOLOGICAL Previous HitINTERPRETATIONNext Hit OF WELL TEST ANALYSIS: A CASE STUDY FROM A FLUVIAL RESERVOIR IN THE GULF OF THAILAND

S.Y. Zheng 1*, P.W.M. Corbett 1 and A. Emery 2


One problem with the inversion of transient well test data is that it can yield a non- unique solution. The uncertainty resulting from this type of approach can only be resolved by considering information from another source such as geology. Geological information will help to define the Previous HitinterpretationNext Hit model which will ensure the correct analysis of the well test data. The results of well test analyses are of little value to reservoir characterisation and modelling unless they can be explained from a geological point of view. This last step is what we refer to here as geological Previous HitinterpretationNext Hit. Other sources of information which can help with well test analyses come from seismic surveys and petrophysics. Modern well test Previous HitinterpretationNext Hit therefore consists of two major steps: analysis of the well test data; and Previous HitinterpretationTop of the results. In detail, this should include the following:
