Application of Pressure-Rate Deconvolution to Well Test Interpretation of Low Permeability Reservoirs
Pressure-rate deconvolution method based on the newly robust solution algorithm is applied to low permeability reservoirs, and deconvolution codes were developed for the study based on Schreoter deconvolution algorithm in this paper. The application of this method in a low permeability oilfield shows that deconvolution can provide much more information than the conventional well test interpretation methods, and this deconvolution method can interpret the whole test sequence but doesn’t be limited in pressure build-up period. It is proved that the pressure-rate deconvolution algorithm works well in well test interpretation of low permeability reservoirs.
