Özet

The objective of this paper is focusing deep insights on stabilized productivity index (PI) and transient pressure behaviors and flow regimes of multilateral wells. It introduces an integrated approach for the performance of reservoirs depleted by multilateral wells extending in arbitrary trajectories. The study introduces new practical solutions for estimating stabilized pseudo-steady state (PSS) productivity index and starting time of PSS as well as transient PI behavior of multilateral wells in single and dual porous media with laterally and spatially anisotropic characteristics.
