SPE Thailand Monthly Technical Meeting - June 2022
"Wireline Deep Transient Test Concept and Field Applications vs. Conventional miniDST "
June 16, 2022  ·  7th Floor The Landmark hotel, Sukhumvit, Bangkok

Abstract

The past few years have not been an easy on the Oil & Gas industry. Many processes and operations have needed to adapt to lower oil & gas prices, caused in part by the COVID-19 pandemic. Understanding reservoir producibility and proving reserves are key to generating a Reservoir Development Plan (FDP). However, the different processes to obtain such answers are strongly dependent on cost. The value of information is extremely important for operators to decide whether to proceed with their discoveries.

In an Interval Pressure Transient Test (IPTT) or known as mini-DST have been widely used in the past 20 years, especially in combination with dual packers, and more recently with single packers. Operation efficiency and safety have improved significantly. This presentation will discuss the IPTT concept and field applications including the IPTT limitation for both probe and inflatable packers.

Second part of this presentation, a Deep Transient Testing (DTT) will be introduced by closing the gap between IPTT and traditional Well Testing methods. With DTT’s, we can flow with wider range of flowrate and longer time than previously possible with Wireline formation testers, enabling pressure transient analysis in different quality of reservoirs. Further data quality improvements come from new, high resolution of gauges deployed with an Intelligent Wireline Formation Testing Platform. This presentation includes a review of the DTT method with several field examples. The benefit of wide range of rate can help to extend the DTT application to tight and ultra tight formations. In addition, the safe, greener testing technology can help us to follow the United Nation Sustainability Development Goal.
