Abstract

Fluvial reservoirs are important hydrocarbon reservoirs worldwide. Well testing, which measures the dynamic response of the reservoir, is potentially a very important tool for investigating the properties in fluvial reservoir systems. Through the integration of geoscience and engineering, the uncertainty resulting from reservoir description and well test analysis is substantially reduced. A new measure for the reservoir heterogeneity leading to an effective flow interval is developed which shows a significant improvement from the conventional core analysis method. These include Geoskin and fluvial flow system diagnostic plots.
