Course Overview

This course in Well Testing Design and Analysis stresses practical application of well test theory to design and interpret pressure transient tests. An integrated approach to well test interpretation is emphasized throughout the course. Class exercises involving hand calculations and simple spreadsheet applications will reinforce the concepts illustrated by both synthetic data sets and real field examples. Participants will be able to apply the knowledge and skills they gain in this course to their job assignments upon course completion. One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for each two participants.
