Abstract

Interference analysis in naturally fractured reservoirs can serve as an extremely effective reservoir characterization tool. The purpose of the study described in this paper is to address an important class of interference test where the contribution of gas-cap support or water oil contact movement can significantly affect the estimated parameters such as storativity and transmissivity. The theoretical framework needed to model interference response in a naturally fractured reservoir producing an oil zone overlain bya gas cap or affected by a desired outer boundary condition, including water-influx effects, is derived and discussed. The curves presented, improve diognistic capability of well test analysts in recognizing source and causes of pressure support in naturally fractured reservoirs.
