Single Well Modelling

Reservoir modelling for a single well does not have to be complex, although a thorough understanding of the system is required. A single well can be modelled through analysis of inflow performance and tubing intake curves, and system behaviour can be matched to current well production data. Well test analysis, if data is available, can also be an extremely useful technique to understand the extent of the drainage area, other geographical features that impact production, and the production flow characteristics. Note that it is exceptionally important to calibrate the model to ensure that the model is reflecting the system as accurately as possible, and reduce uncertainly in any treatment design.
