Regional Report - Gulf of Mexico: Well testing systems allow early GOM reservoir appraisals ///

The goal for well testing in the early reservoir appraisal stage is to gather information, to help determine the economic potential of field discoveries and provide insights to safely commercialize fields. A project (Project 08121-2501-02) to evaluate deepwater testing concepts in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) was recently undertaken through the Research Partnership to Secure Energy for America (RPSEA) Section 999 Program by Nautilus International and several partners. The research objectives included reservoir modeling of three major deepwater GOM reservoir plays and simulations of a variety of well tests (long/short-term, injection/production testing). The result of this project includes options for deepwater well testing of GOM reservoirs.
