This study presentient model for transient flow of a non-Newtonian power-law fluid in a fractal reservoir. The pressure, pressure derivative, pressure-derivative-to-pressure-ratio and rate behaviour of such a flow system are examined. The model is shown to be useful in the identification and modeling of power-law fluid flow in a fractal reservoir. The model also demonstrates the importance of analyzing both transient pressure and rate data for a single-well situation in such flow systems.
