GENERALIZED ANALYSIS OF THE MULTI-WELL INTERFERENCE TEST IN HYDROCARBON RESERVOIRS
This study presents a generalized analytical formulation of the multi-well interference test problem using the concept of the source and sink functions as a tool for solving the basic interference equations. The much broader case ,featuring inner well boundry conditions with skin and storage factors at both the active and the several observation wells,is considered. The general nature of the formulation allows for the analysis of non-homogeneous rreservoirs and hence the concepts of reservoirs directional permeability were addressed. Most of the published cases of interference tests were identified as limiting cases of the generalized formulation.
