    Abstract

    An analysis of a large number of well tests in naturally fractured reservoirs has confirmed the validity of the pseudo-semi-steady-state model of matrix block support. This is due to interporosity skin as a result of fracture face alteration. Fracture network theory shows that wells in fractured reservoirs should exhibit a negative skin for an ideal connection to the fracture system. A new dimensionless derivative type curve for estimation of dual porosity parameters has been developed.
