...Naelah A. Mousli; Rajagopal Raghavan; Heber Cinco-Ley; Fernando Samaniego-V. This paper reviews pressure behavior at an observation well intercepted by a vertical fracture. The active well was assumed either unfractured or intercepted by a fracture parallel to the fracture at the observation well...

...K.H. Guppy; H. Cinco-Ley; H.J. Ramey, Jr.; F. Samaniego-V. Several methods have been proposed in the literature for analyzing drawdown data for the determination of fracture conductivity of vertically fractured wells. These techniques have paved accurate, but in some cases the fracture conductivity...
