This paper presents the results of an investigation concerning the development of a reliable and accurate technique for establishing the stabilized deliverability performance of multi-layer commingled systems using multirate production log measurements. Both linear and non-linear systems are addressed in this paper, providing a basis for the analysis of reservoirs exhibiting Darcy and non-Darcy flow, respectively.

Extension of the conventional Selective Inflow Performance analysis is also presented in this paper to obtain estimates of the formation and well completion properties such as effective permeability, radial flow steady state damage /stimulation skin effect, and non-Darcy flow coefficient. In the specific case where the deliverability performance of a vertically fractured well is considered, estimates of the effective fracture half-length and average fracture conductivity may be derived from the analysis. In cases where the multirate deliverability tests are performed under boundary dominated flow conditions, conventional deliverability analysis techniques may also be employed to derive estimates of the reservoir drainage area in addition to the well and reservoir parameters that can be obtained in a transient flow analysis. Applications of the analyses reported in this paper demonstrate the use of the analyses to evaluate the inflow performance measurements of commingled multi-layer reservoirs obtained using multi-rate production logs.
