INTERFERENCE TEST

Introduction Geological structure of object. Estimation of interference test complexity. Study of previous well test data. Estimation of well test data and technical issues. Artificial lift state estimation. Targets of interference test: The target is defined by the customer. Survey program is designed in order clarify maximum issues. Interwell communication test (between active and observe wells). Reservoir parameters estimation; Fault between wells rectification; Productive layers pitching detection; Development correction according to the interference test results; Reserves confirmation (SEC classification); Brief description Description, advantages and disadvantages of interference test. Parameters determination Reservoir parameters Reservoir parameters such as reservoir pressure, Bubble point pressure, porosity, totals compressibility, pay thickness distribution are analyzed and clarified in order to estimate its influence on disturbance wave propagation through the tested part of reservoir. Fluid parameters Fluid parameters such as saturation, watercut, fluid densities, viscosities, volume factors etc are analyzed and clarified in order to estimate its influence on disturbance wave propagation through the tested part of reservoir. Operation parameters Considering the task the following parameters are defined: an observation and disturbing wells number of pulses pulse duration test duration operation regimes of wells Test duration criteria Test tool parameters, reservoir nose influence are considered while choosing the duration of test. Zone of silence The zone where there no changes of operation regimes should be done is defined. The zone of investigation is defined considering reservoir parameters. Tools technical characteristics Required parameters of tools (range of measurements, sensibility, resolution, accuracy, memory capacity, continuous operation time etc) and appropriate tools are selected.

Results of design Calculation results Disturbing well continuous operation time (one cycle): in hours Observation well shut down time (one cycle): in hours Whole test duration: in hours Signal delay: in hours Cumulative volume of injected/produced water: in cu.m Bottom hole pressure: bar Basing on the calculated model the well test is designed. Predicted plots of bottomhole pressure of production/injection wells are submitted; Interpretation Interference test data quality estimation The following aspects are depicted in result of test data analysis: External processes influence on the pressure disturbance wave propagation from disturbing till observation well; Technical errors; Range of data for interpretation; Average rate of disturbing cycles (pulses) for interpretation; Possibility of interpretation of available data and its result; The criteria of interference test response time definition Time response depicts the time necessary for pressure disturbance pulse traveling from disturbing well till observation well. Accuracy of this parameter estimation depends on the reservoir noise amplitude, duration of noise from disturbing well and pressure gauges sensitivity. Basing on the time of pulse traveling within the reservoir the order of wells which sensed the pulse the conclusions about interwell connectivity should be done. Fault location Basing on the amplitude and pressure response time the location of fault may be done. Test parameters tuning After comparison of interference test design and obtained data the further tests are adjusted. Simulation model is tuned. New adjusted and refined filtration model will be able to match the history of field development. Interpretation data and parameters of test comparison. The trajectory of pressure propagation wave is defined, qualitative estimation of reservoir features, pitching and further well test recommendations are generated on the basis of data corellation Influence of test results on reserves estimation The basis of reserves classification is on the proved reserves. In the results of interference test interpretation and interwell connectivity the new regions of proved reserves grows are defined, areas and volumes of corresponding types of reserves are estimated.
