Well Testing
Designed for: Duration Learning Level:
The course is written for engineers who will be involved in both planning and interpreting Skills
well tests. A reasonable level of reservoir engineering knowledge is required, eg Knowledge
fluid property characterisation. It is suitable for reservoir engineers with 1-5 years 1 2 3 4 5

experience, or those who have not practised well test design and analysis before.

This course shows you how to approach the planning, witnessing, interpretation and
reporting of a well test. An expansive case study is provided which is used as an example
of oil well testing. Separate examples are used for gas well testing and other more
complex tests.

The mathematical background to transient pressure testing is covered in sufficient detail to allow the theory
behind the basic interpretation techniques to be understood.
