A new pseudo-radial pressure model for inflow performance analysis and near-wellbore condensate banking deliverability is developed. Analysis of condensate banking and evolution in near wellbore region (i.e. zone 3) has been extensively studied. The new zone 4 region identified in this work will help in delineating the limit of retrograde condensation and the onset of revapourisation. Revapourisation after retrograde condensation is usually not accounted for in most field applications. However, in mature fields such as the Oredo field investigated in this study, revapourisation and near wellbore dynamics play an important role in optimising production from the field. The results of the newly formulated model captured the transient retrograde revapourisation near the wellbore for the well X studied in this work.
