Rate-Convolved Horner Plot for Analysis of Simultaneously Acquired Flow Rate and Pressure Data
The authors presents a new technique called the Rate-Convolved Horner plot for analyzing rate and pressure data which offers certain advantages in comparison to other methods. These advantages include: simplicity and analogy to conventional Horner plot, integration of flow period data with shut-in data, better handle on skin, and its adaptability for quick wellsite interpretation. Field examples are presented to show the application of this technique to a variety of well testing configurations. The technique presented is especially suited for the analysis of short duration transient tests, i.e., after underbalance perforating, TCP/DST, closed chamber testing and IMPULSE Testing because of rapid variations of flow rate in such tests.
