This work presents the well-test management design and interpretationmethods that have been implemented to evaluate the exploratory wells of thePlataforma Deltana Project, in the Eastern Venezuela basin. The proposedmethodology has been applied to an exploratory well drilled in this project, itis an offshore gas-condensate well located near the border of Venezuela andTrinidad & Tobago. One important aspect that is emphasized in this work isthe need to test exploratory offshore wells to obtain the basic reservoir andwell productivity parameters, and to provide an estimate of the recoverablereserves associated to the well drainage area. The methodology is based on theintegration of seismic, geology and petrophysical information, to optimize thedesign and time of the tests. In order to elaborate the particular well testingprogram in the best economical way, time is a critical factor in any offshorewell, in addition to get focused on layer evaluation and determining producingfluids properties. In this work the evaluation results obtained from theimplementation of this methodology in two sands is presented.
