The first book in the SPE Textbook Series, this volume emphasizes fundamental principles in using well pressures and flow rates to evaluate the formation surrounding a tested well. Originally published in the early 1980's, this textbook has been an industry and educational standard for many years. Example problems, exercises, tables and figures supplement the material.


Contents: Fluid flow in porous media • Pressure buildup tests • Flow tests • Analysis of well tests using type curves • Gas well testing • Other well tests • Appendices: Development of differential equations for flow in porous media • Dimensionless variables • Van Everdingen and Hurst solutions to diffusivity equations • Rock and fluid property correlations • General theory of well testing • Use of SI units in well-testing equations
