Building accurate reservoir models can be quite challenging, especially highly stratified thick intervals in hydraulic communication in reservoir. Presented methodology is based on comprehensive Interval and Interference Pressure Transient Testing (IIPTT) for classified reservoir types with a systematic approach. Classification of reservoir types is based on layering, thickness, and hydraulic communication of layers in the reservoir.
The methodology describes building more accurate anisotropic reservoir models, providing well performance assessment based on integrated comprehensive IIPTT solving with efficient non-linear parameter estimation and modeling with numerical simulation for different reservoir types. The number distributed IIPTTs are optimized to ensure to achieve coverage across total thickness depending on the reservoir type.
It is demonstrated that high resolution accurate reservoir models can be built for relatively thick highly layered reservoirs in a feasible manner. In addition, field examples with classified reservoir types including flow tests supported the methodology.
