Point-source solutions are derived in the Laplace-transform domain and an extensive library of solutions is documented to obtain pressure distributions and well responses for a wide variety of wellbore configurations: partially penetrating vertical wells, horizontal wells, and fractured wells (complete or limited entry). Wells may be located in infinite or bounded systems (rectangular or circular reservoirs). Several combinations of closed and/or constant-pressure boundary conditions are considered at the vertical and lateral reservoir boundaries. These solutions may be used to examine homogeneous or naturally fractured reservoirs.
