Abstract

Gas-condensate reservoirs exhibit a near-wellbore complex behavior due to the existence of a two-phase system when pressure drops below dew point. In analyzing well-testing data, a single-phase approach is only valid for well condition above dew point, whereas a multi-phase pseudo-pressure approach is widely adopted for a gas reservoir operating below dew-point. This article utilizes the pseudo-pressure approach, for analyzing well-test data in gas-condensate reservoirs producing below the dew-point pressure, to generate Corey exponents for relative permeability in order to determine near-wellbore representative relative permeability that history matches the actual well-testing data.
